It’s true! All Walkathon participants will be stepping foot into the 31st year of this annual event. What inspires you to get involved?
- Is it the social connections that happen as you walk with friends?
- Could it be the competition around raising funds for LifePath?
- Or maybe is it that you appreciate what LifePath provides to the community?
Whatever your motivation, we are glad to welcome you back in support of the older adults, individuals with disabilities, and caregivers served by our agency. Each year we are so proud of this effort that is anchored in goodwill for LifePath and the work we do.
Our plan is to be together on Saturday, May 6, outside, at LifePath’s office at 101 Munson Street in Greenfield. Here are a number of ways to participate:
Sponsorship is the backbone of this event. If you’ve been a sponsor – come back! Or join for the first time! This year’s sponsorship opportunities will start at $250 and will again feature an option to be with us on event day – bring your table and materials demonstrating your commitment to LifePath and this community. Come be recognized as a company that cares about the quality of our lives as we age in this community like Greenfield Savings Bank, Bete Fog Nozzle, Davis Financial, Liberty Tax, Montague B.P.O.E. Elks #2521, NMH School, ProsperiTea Planning, Renaissance Builders, Smith-Kelleher Funeral Home, and Witty’s Funeral Home.
Teams and Individual Fundraisers
It’s time to gather your team members, call on your donors, and do what you do: craft and send email messages, make phone calls, and walk! Asking and giving may again be done through an online personal fundraising link, through the website, or by using donation sheets. Share your activity on social media (Facebook! Instagram! Twitter!) to secure more support. Our hope is to have all of the teams return and sign on new teams from schools, social organizations, businesses, and more. (Know someone looking for a great project that will keep them moving?) We can’t say it enough – you are the heart and soul of this event. We are so grateful for your spirit, effort, enthusiasm and generosity.
We are always heartened when we see gift after gift come through in support of the walkers and, in turn, in support of LifePath. Thank you for saying “yes” with your gift when a walker asks for your support. Your response is one reason why walkers put forward the effort – you make it easy to take on responsibility for the well-being of people they do not know. What a remarkable outpouring of humankindness from both donor and walker.
We depend on each other each day and when we stand together, we change the lives of more people. Because of this, we want to celebrate our partnerships. Like sponsors, we’re looking for you to join us on event day and set up a table to promote your organization. Help us tell the story of why this collaborative community is a great place to grow older together.
