Helloooooooooooooooooooooo Tampa Bay Parrot Heads!!!!!
Bev is championing the Alzheimer's, Saturday 10/29 walk. Even if you don't walk, you can go to the sites and give a donation until a week after the walk. We're doing well, but haven't met our goal yet.
Hello Fellow Parrot heads;
The Alzheimer's walk that TBPHC is supporting is this Saturday at Brighthouse Field in Clearwater. Anyone walking is welcome to walk with me. The walk begins at 9 AM; sign in starts at 8 AM, I'll be near the steps going up to sign in by 8:30; I'll be wearing an Alzheimer's walk t-shirt and a red GA Bulldogs ball cap -- who could miss that!!
Remember, that donations can still be made online even after the walk; we're doing good, let's keep it going.
Thanks for all of the support,
TBPH will be supporting he Alzheimer's walk again this year. The walk will be on October 29th at Bright House Field in Clearwater. Sign in starts at 8 AM with the walk starting at 9 AM With this early start the walk will be done well before noon, so it still leaves half of the day to accomplish other things. We haven't had a very good turn out from our club in the past years; let's work hard to do better this year.
ALSO, let's remember that it's not really about the "walk" it's about raising money to support research to find a cure for this awful illness. Dorothy advises me that PHIP is encouraging the individual clubs to make an effort to support Alzheimer's; so let's do our part. If you can't make the walk, at lease give a donation; it doesn't matter how large or small. If you want to give a few bucks at the meetings and Bev isn't there, give the money to Dorothy and she'll get it to Bev; or you can go online to make a donation
It's simple; just go online to "2016 Walt to End Alzheimer's" select the Pinellas County FL walk. On that page you can select to "Register" "Volunteer" or "Donate" Be sure to either register or donate to our team the 'POPTOP PARROTS"
Thanks for your support!
Dear Club Leaders:
The Weather is getting warmer and the thoughts of Buffett concerts are coming to mind. It's also Walk Season for Alzheimer's Association around the county. Now is the time to bring it up at your club meetings and register your club for your local walk. You can register by going to the following link:
http://act.alz.org/site/TR?company_id=1260&pg=national_company&pw_id=9721 - Pop Top Parrots are registered with PHIP.
Get your members energized to raise funds by having each club member send an email note to their contacts list. Many of the local Alzheimer's chapters are offering incentives for members to register. Look in to it.
Someone develops Alzheimer's every 68 seconds with Alzheimer's disease being the 6th leading cause of death-and the only one in top 10 without a way to treat, cure or slow progression. The Walk is a vital fundraiser to help eliminate this awful disease!!
We are off to a great start, let's keep it going!!!!!!
Alzheimer's National Team Captain
