So, I wanted to make you aware of an upcoming event that is part of my Personal Fundraising Campaign that is always ongoing. Each year, my community holds an Annual “Cookie Walk” to raise funds for several charities that are meaningful to family members here where I live. This is the 17th Annual Prairie Crossing Cookie Walk to be held on Sunday, December 16th from 12 Noon-3PM here in our Charter School Gym. The event divides the proceeds from the sale of all baked goods among the four chosen charities. These charities are chosen, as I said, because we have families here that are impacted by each illness represented by these charitable organizations. One of those charities is the ICA! Last year, the ICA’s portion of the Cookie Walk’s proceeds totaled $546.75! Pretty good when you consider we have to split the proceeds among 4 different charities! We're hoping to increase that amount this year!
My Support Group Leader is, once again, baking goodies to contribute to the sale and has enlisted friends to bake as well. I would normally be baking up a storm too, but due to my recent surgery, I am under doctor’s orders not to – no bending, lifting or twisting for a full 6 weeks makes it really difficult to bake the way I do. I am very disappointed that I can’t do my annual baking extravaganza, but promised to do my best to help spread the word about this great event! This is always a fun event and this year we’re hoping to have music and vendors selling interesting and unique items and, of course, lots and lots of cookies for sale. The money raised for the ICA goes directly to the ICA’s “Imagine No IC” Campaign via my personal Fundraising Campaign. That means I have requested 100% of all funds raised for the ICA go only to Research! Here’s a link to my personal fundraising page, so you can see what they look like when set up.
