Post 10

This week, my whole project changed. I am still doing a walk in order to benefit Kids on the Go however, I am not holding the walk on May 3rd. Now, I am teaming up with the Grosse Pointe Run and through that I will have my own team and will most likely end up with a greater turnout. The GP Run is highly advertised and I will have my own website, making it so much easier for my walk to be successful. Although, my walk will end up taking place in September. This is a great relief because I was highly stressed about getting the walk out there and making sure that many people would show. I am excited for the walk as I do not have to put it together really quickly, not putting as much time as I would desire into it. Now, I will have plenty of time over the summer and now to make sure my walk does well. I am now very excited for this walk to take place and I now am going to start working on finding a name for my walk. I am considering the phrase, "Someone special needs you! Walk for someone special." But, I hope to have the name of my walk finalized by next week so I can create my website!

This week I finally confirmed the date for the walk. My walk will be on May 3rd from 9:30 am until 12:30pm. I am very happy that I could work with Grosse Pointe South and was allowed to use the track because I think it will make it easier having all of the participants contained in one area. Now, I need to work on getting the word out about my walk. Hopefully I will be able to have the Grosse Pointe News publish a story about my walk. However, before I publicize my walk I really need to figure out the logistics of what will happen during my walk to make sure that I can pull it off. I am getting worried about the deadline though. I really hope I can pull off the walk in two months. I was not anticipating that finding a date would take about two months. However, I am so excited to be able to finally start planning!
