ARC MERCER 2012 WALK-A-THON
Arc Mercer 2012 Walk-a-Thon – Saturday, May 19th!
Veterans Park, Hamilton, NJ
The Arc Mercer is preparing for one of our largest fundraisers of the year, the annual spring Walk-a-Thon. This year the event is taking place on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at Veterans Park in Hamilton, NJ. Our Walk-a-Thon is a family friendly event that gives us an opportunity to come together as a community in support of quality services for individuals with developmental disabilities. Our nonprofit organization provides support services to over 1,000 individuals with developmental disabilities and their families in Mercer County. One hundred percent of funds raised at our event benefit those we support!
The Walk-a-Thon is comprised of teams and individuals who have raised funds to participate. Teams are often comprised of a group of colleagues, friends or family members. There is no set amount one must raise to participate, however each person who raises at least $25 receives a 2012 Walk-a-Thon T-Shirt. On the morning of the Walk-a-Thon, registration begins at 9AM. At 10AM the ribbon cutting ceremony and one mile walk begins! Following the one mile walk is a free picnic lunch, DJ, 50/50 Raffle, Games, and more. This year we are excited to also feature local artisans and crafters who will be showcasing and selling their works.
We invite you to join us in our 2012 Walk-a-Thon by either forming your own team or walking individually! Teams may feel free to get creative by making their own signs, t-shirts, etc.
If you are unable to participate in the walk itself, you may also make a financial donation to the event on our First Giving website. If you are not comfortable with registering for our event online please contact us for a hard copy of our Walk-a-Thon Registration Sheet. We also offer a variety of event sponsorship packages for businesses. We are also actively seeking crafters and vendors to join the event.
We encourage our participants to register for the event by May 11, 2012 however we do accept walk-ins the day of the event. We look forward to walking along side you!
