The 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer's - San Gabriel Valley is just days away and we can't wait to see you! Here are some event details to help you get there and enjoy this inspirational event.
The San Gabriel Valley Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is this Sunday in Pasadena and we hope you are ready for a morning full of fun and fundraising, all to help #ENDALZ! If you haven't reached your fundraising goal don't be discouraged because it's not too late! We will be accepting donations until December 31, 2019!
Need some help? Here are a few suggestions:
- Follow up with those folks who said they would write you a check or donate to your page, but haven't gotten to it yet.
- Ask your gym friends, folks at your place of worship, that nice lady on the corner you say "hi" to every morning. Now is the time to leave no stone unturned.
- Send another email to your contacts.
