Help the Homeless Walkathon
Everyone is welcome! It costs you nothing! Fannie Mae donates $50 if you turn in your form.
Saturday, November 17, 2007
Metro opens at 6:00 a.m.
Registration opens at 7:00 a.m.
Pre-walk activities begin at 8:30 a.m.
Walkathon begins at 9:00 a.m.
Each year there's a walkathon on the National Mall in DC to raise money to help the homeless. As an employee of Fannie Mae, they will donate $100 if I show up and walk, and $50 for each guest of an employee that shows up and walks.
If possible I'd like to get a group of ESers to walk this year. It's an easy walk and an easy way to raise money to help the homeless. There is nothing for you to pay if you go as a guest of an employee. Of course you can always donate also.
I'm attaching a map of the route and a map of the registration area.
If you're interested in going, please PM me. I'll pre-register you and send you the guest registration form. Just fill one out for each person that's coming and hand them in that morning at the pre-registered check-in booth.
We'll meet by the pre-registered booth shown on the map above by 8:30 to 8:45 to turn in our forms to make sure that we each count as a $50 donation from Fannie Mae, and get our free t-shirts. The earlier you can get to the booth, the less crowded it will be. The lines get long as the time gets closer to the start. I'll be there before 8:30 if you come earlier. I'll have the forms with me. They're a simple name and signature form so that won't take long.
It looks like it'll be a chilly morning, so bring your winter Redskins gear.
We should be able to complete the walk and be back in plenty of time to get to Redskins Park to send the team off to stomp all over brokeback mountain.
Also don't forget Sweet Sassy Molassey's event Saturday night.
