Details for Walk - June 3, 2012

Today I had a busy day figuring out how to register, register myself and Joe and Emily for the "Kids Dash", set up Team Jasiu and the fundraising web page, e-mails to co-workers for donations and Facebook messages for getting the information out about all the details... It's a lot of work trying to get this thing organized.. but I'm sure it will pay off and it's already proving to be so rewarding. Next year I'm starting sooner!

So here it is -

*** Sunday June 3, 2012  *** 8 am ***
*** Keeler Park 93rd and Keeler Ave *** Oak Lawn, IL ***

If you are interested in joining us for the walk (our team will be walking considering we will have a double stroller with us) you must register on active.com. Click here for the registration website.

Step 1 - Set up your e-mail address and password for active.com

Step 2 - Accept Waiver Choose   "Team Members - Register for your team" then choose  "Team Walkers - Register for your team" then agree to the waiver and type in your name to sign electronically.

Step 3 - Complete Form - you can register yourself and fill in all the information and then once you are done you can choose the option to register someone else (spouse or friend) and then you will only have to pay the various registration fees once per person. ($20 for each walker which includes T-shirt) In this step you must choose TEAM JASIU to indicate you will be joining our team, no password leave this section blank.

Step 4 - Payment (self explanatory) Note a convenience fee will apply.

Step 5 - Print your receipt (it will also be e-mailed to you). 

You will also be able to set up a fundraising website if you choose to raise funds on your own from neighbours or co-workers or you can use my link below if you don't want to bother with that.  

Kids Dash !
If you are interested in also entering your kids in the Kids Dash which will be following the 5K run/walk at around 9:30 you can do so also by following step 2-4 but instead of choosing "team members - Register for your team" Choose "Individual Registration" and then choose Kids Dash $10 (kids will get a t-shirt and a medal). You can register the kids at the same time you are registering yourself once you go through your steps 2-3 and you must sign for your kids. If Kids are in strollers they do not have to be registered for either event.

Donations !
If you can not join us for the walk and still wish to contribute you may do so by helping us raise funds for the cause.  The website to donate can be found by clicking here. From this page you can click on "Home" in the top navigation bar and it will take you to the official website for the Run/Walk and you can get more information.

Running For Hope ~ From the Main Donations website~
In 2011, over 1,400 community members, corporate partners, patients and families attended this event and raised over $80,000. We are excited to announce that the 5th annual 5k event will be held June 3, 2012. This year’s event will once again benefit The Ronald McDonald House® near Hope and Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital. We hope you will join us this year in helping to raise $100,000.

Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital is the largest freestanding pediatric medical facility in the south and southwest suburbs of Chicago. The hospital offers a Level 111c neonatal intensive care unit, one of the largest pediatric cardiology programs in Illinois, and an internationally recognized pediatric hematology and oncology division. The 69-bed institution has expanded its services to families by partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicago & Northwest Indiana (RMHC-CNI).
The Ronald McDonald House® near Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital provides a “home away from home” for families of children receiving treatment at Hope Hospital. This 16 bedroom House offers comfortable rooms where families can get a good night’s rest knowing their child is close by. The money raised from this event helps with the operational costs of the House.

Thank you all for your interest and help in any way you can. It means so much to us. Let's help reach the oveall goal for Advocate Hope Children's and Ronald McDonald House.
