The Michigan Young Professionals Kiwanis Clubs are coming together virtually at the Detroit Walk to End Alzheimer’s! Our members are committing to walk/run/jog/cycle/swim to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association. Our YP Clubs span about 120 miles (Metro Detroit>Dearborn>Ann Arbor >Lansing) and we plan on walking that distance (or at least part of it)! We hope that you will consider joining or donating to our team. #Kiwanis2EndALZ
How to register:
Visit act.alz.org/goto/MIYP and hit “Join Team”
Set your goal of how much you want to raise- you can coordinate with the amount of miles you want to walk/run/jog/cycle/swim. You can ask for $1/mile or $5/mile, it’s up to your comfort level. Some examples are:
$120 goal for 120 miles= $1 donation/mile
$180 goal for 36 miles (from Dearborn > Ann Arbor) = $5 donation/mile
$106 goal for 53 miles (from Ann Arbor > Dearborn > Ferndale) = $2 donation/mile
Make this fun and make it your own. You can update your fundraising page with your personal story and if you have a personal tie to Alzheimer’s.
Share on social media! The #1 reason why people don’t give is because they aren’t asked. And don’t forget to post pics of your progress, especially while you are on walks!
