A Walk for Water: Register, Fundraise and Support a Tradition of Hope!

Dear Friends,
In a little over two weeks, on May 14, those of us in the Washington DC area will gather together to walk the shady trails around Lake Frank in Derwood, Maryland for "A Walk for Water" - an annual tradition that has inspired students to be leaders for a better future.  We will spend time in nature – families and friends together – and be transported away from our conveniences, off our couches and out from behind our electronic devices – to come together for a greater purpose. 

If you live in the DC metro area, please take a few minutes to register online and create a fundraising page:
  • Click on “Register for this Event”
  • The next page will ask,  “Would you like to register for this event?” Click “Yes register online now”. 
  • From there, you will have the option to register as an individual or as a family. Follow the instructions to complete your registration.
2.    After you register, you will be given the option to start a team, or to join an existing team.  Teams can fundraise together. (this is optional!)

3.    You will also be given the option to create a fundraising page.  Creating a page only takes a few minutes and makes it easy to ask your friends and family to support your Walk.  Please create a fundraising page!  If you don’t have time to create one right away, you can return to do it later.  Just go to this page and click on "Raise Money".

4.    Upon completion of your registration, you will receive a confirmation email from FirstGiving with a link from where you can download an Event Information and Fundraising Kit.  For your convenience, here’s the link(For Windows users, when you download the materials you will see two files.  Please click on the one named "AWFW 2011 Lake Frank Event Info and Fundraising Packet".)  

Whether or not you live in DC, please feel free to share this post on your listservs, with your friends and other networks and invite them to join us on May 14thShare the link of your fundraising page on Facebook, Twitter and with all your social networks!  Invite everyone to contribute to your page!

We at Amman Imman are counting on YOU! Your participation not only helps make "A Walk for Water" a tradition, but it also supports the ideals of students who believe they can make a better world and, more importantly, provides people in the Azawak with hope that they can make their dreams of a better future a reality.

Yours for a future of hope,
