Steps to Take Now to Ensure Your Team’s Success in
the 2004 Walk to D’Feet ALS!


Last year our fundraising success was boosted by the number of people who followed these three simple steps:

  • Form a team or walk as an individual. A walk team is two or more people – family, friends, co-workers, church members or service clubs – who want to join in the fun and raise money to support The ALS Association. It’s easy to start a team – just choose a team captain and a team name and register your team on www.alsala.org.

  • Set your own personal goals and team goals and start raising money! Ask everyone you know to support your participation. Collect donations as you talk to people. Last year our success was boosted by the great number of families who participated in our national letter writing campaign*. We encourage everyone to begin gathering a mailing list of friends, family and neighbors who will team up to raise funds for research to find a cure and to support the work of our Patient Services Department. Mail a personal letter to everyone on your list asking them to join your walking team on, gather donations from their friends and neighbors and make a personal donation. We have found that you will double your success if you include a self-addressed, stamped envelope along with your letter.

  • Watch for your walker’s registration form in the mail in early August and check the Chapter’s web site at www.alsala.org for up-to-the-minute information.

  • For more information contact Giovanna D'Angelo, Director of Special Events at [email protected]

  • *This year, students from Pepperdine University will be in our office on to assist PALS with their letter campaigns by helping to compose letters, photocopying, addressing and stamping envelopes and even dropping them off at the post office. All we need is a copy of your mailing list and your letter or your idea for a letter. PALS, if you would like to have students provide this free service for you, please contact Molly Rockey at the Chapter office at 818-865-8067 or [email protected].
