Hello Buddy Walk PEEPS!

This year marks JOEY's 10th BUDDY WALK!!   What???  I don't know where time goes but we are excited to celebrate!

If you can join us for the walk this year, here are some details:

Meet at the Capitol Grounds by 10:15am.  

Find us:  Team name:  NOT YOUR AVERAGE JOE.  T-shirts are charcoal gray with green and turquois design.  I will also have similar colored balloons at our gathering place.

It is important to me to get a good team photo so we will be doing that as soon as everyone arrives, but this must occur prior to the actual walk (which starts at 11:00am.

This site is for anyone to:

1)Register for the walk.  This means you will be there physically...

2) Register for the walk and donate.  $10 gets you a backpack.  this website saves you a wait in line on the day of the walk.

3) Donate (you will not be at the walk physically and will not receive a backpack but love Joey so much you want to donate on his behalf)

PLEASE contact me with any questions about this event or the process of registering/donating.  

We really hope to see you at Joey's 10th BW!  Kali
