Labor Day had come and gone. You know what that means! The Village Walk for Cancer Research and football!
It's not too late to register for the walk. The walker registration fee is $35 and anyone can register up until the day of the walk. We cannot guarantee the size of your t-shirt, but will do our best. All registered walkers that didn't pick-up their t-shirts on Monday, September 14th or Tuesday, September 15th can call Claire MacNeill at 501-922-3642 to avoid any delay the day of the walk.
volunteers from the Village WFCR Committee will be at Walmart on Hwy 7 to take donations, hand out walker registrations forms and answer questions, weather permitting this Saturday, September 19th. It is amazing how many people come up to us and share their stories about how cancer has affected their lives. A special thank you to Walmart for allowing us to have a table again this year. Stop by and say hello to Gloria and Christy!
Cork and Bottle donated 5% of their gross sales on Thursday, September 10th and will present the Village WFCR with a check in the amount of $139. Thanks to KVRE for advertising and the folks at Cork and Bottle for their donation. But more importantly, THANK YOU to everyone that took time out of their busy day to go in and make your purchases. We appreciate you!
Village Yogurt is donating 50% of their yogurt sales on Thursday, September 24th. . You can enjoy a refreshing yogurt or gelato and help support the walk. A few members of our planning team plan will be at Village Yogurt during the day to thank you for your support.
Thanks to your generosity, we have raised over $31,000 so far and are on our way to reaching our goal of $45,000 this year. Over 400 people have registered to walk so far. ASMSA, Jessieville and Fountain Lake students are started their fund raising and will be walking with us. We have several teams that are walking this year with Sacred Heart still on top. However, the Marching for Matt team is right behind them!
Come join the fun and be a part of this year's Village Walk for Cancer Research. This is our 14th year and together we have raised over $329,000 in cash donations for the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Foundation Fund at UAMS for cancer research.
