2016 3-Day Walk Contributors Rock in Record Time

Heart Contributors postThe 3-Day Walk contributors are predictable – in a good way.

No, make that a great way.

Since 2003, when I first started asking for contributions for the 3-Day, 60-Mile Walk for the Cure, my contributors delivered.

Now as I prepare for my 13th Walk, I should not be surprised my contributors knocked it out of the park again. And they did it in record time.

Thank you is so inadequate.

3-Day Walk Contributors Keep on Giving

I hate to ask for money. Well, except if it’s for my business writing services. At least then I am delivering something to the person giving me the money.

It doesn’t matter that contributions for the 3-Day Walk are for a great cause. I simply find it difficult to ask.

In my corporate days, it was a bit easier.

  • There were company match contributions
  • Who feels bad about hitting up a huge corporation for money?

In my second Walk in 2004, I volunteered as a crew member instead of a walker. A big reason for that was my aversion to asking for money.

While not required to raise a minimum amount, crew members do fundraise. But for me, the pressure was off.

I admit, the generosity of my 3-Day Walk contributors has made asking easier.

In 2008, I lost some contributors as I left the corporate world behind to start my own business. That was expected. What was not expected is how many of the individuals I knew from that time continue to contribute. Year after year. I am humbled by their support.

By June, I raised the minimum required to walk another Walk. Once again, the San Diego Walk takes place in November. I can’t wait.

Thank You 3-Day Contributors!

With my 13th Walk around the corner, once more I want to send a huge THANK YOU to all my contributors. You keep this Old Lady Walking. Let’s hope a cure is found soon.
