May 2: JDRF Fundraising kick Off

For the month of May most of my blog posts will be revolving around my team, and the Halifax JDRF walk to Cure Diabetes. This year I was asked to be the promotions chair on the walk committee. It has not come without its challenges, mainly because I thought it would be a great idea to take that on, buy my first house and also take on a lot more responsibility at my work place, captain my team, all while working 40 kms away from everything and running a carpool. Smart? We'll see.

Our Adult Onesies walk team is SERIOUSLY lacking in the funds department! We are mostly T1 and Type Awesomes walking to show that diabetes doesn't go away once we are adults.

For anyone local: our major fundraiser will be next Thursday, May 2 at the Lower Deck Pub in Clayton Park. Here is the poster we have printed and put around:



Our Auction will have things like: Paintings, a set of crystal wine glasses, a rug-hooked center piece, a cake from Marble Slab creamery, a purse and wallet set, Kitchenaid Mixer attachments, a kitchen spice and tupperware basket, hand painted cheese board and more!

We will be selling 50/50 tickets, raffle tickets for two tickets anywhere Westjet flies, 1/2 price apps, drink specials and of course TRIVIA!

We will have a lot going on, but it's really important we do well. We have a HUGE fundraising target.

Here's my fundraising page.
