The More People Who Physically Walk, The More, And More Widespread, Publicity We May Receive.  This Helps To Raise Public Awareness, Making It Easier For Those In Need To Find Us During The Darkest Days Of Their Lives.
We Need Someone To Make Follow Up Calls To All Of The Other Statewide Chapters, Inviting Them To Join Us.

ORDER A T-SHIRT!
We Aren’t Making Any Profit On The T-Shirts, So It Isn’t About Fund-raising – It Is About Looking More Uniform, Which Will Look Better In The Photos.  We Will Be Using Photos On The Website And For Future Outreach.
