“Teaming” with Success!

On June 5, my book club will be walking as a team, calling ourselves the Literary Lappers, in a fund-raising walk sponsored by the local Cancer Services.

What a successful way “walks” have become for worthy organizations to raise money.  And such a win/win for everyone — the organization raises money, and the groups of walkers have a good time taking  a walk together through a beautiful park.

Oh, and one more thing, I’m supposed to ask friends to “sponsor” me.  No, I’m not taking bets on whether I fall down or not.  But thanks for asking.

So if you would be interested in donating to the support of cancer treatment and research, mention that in your comment and I’ll e-mail you the information.

I’m looking forward to a walk in the park with the Literary Lappers but, lest you get the wrong impression because “lappers” somehow sounds like “runners”, let me just clarify that we will be walking, with no spandex and very little sweat involved!

    I love Hilary’s comment about your lap dancing fundraiser:) Breaking into dance while walking might be a new form of entertainment for the rest of the walkers…..

    I’m kind of a fanatic about the word society–it usually translates in people’s minds to American Cancer Society, and as you know, that’s not who we are. I do thank you for “plugging” our walk on your blog–the more people who know about it and us, the better! We’ll actually have bookclub before the walk, so see you then.

  6. […] was the Fundraising Walk for the Cancer Services of NE Indiana that I told you about here.  Thank you so much to those of you who supported me with your contributions.  I accomplished my […]
