Once a year, the Central Florida Packer Backer club and its members gather together to support a great cause... and have some fun at the same time! We're hoping you'll join us for the "MS Walk 2010."
WHEN: Saturday March 20th, 2010. Registration starts at 8:00am. Walk starts at 9am and lasts about 1.5 hours (followed by a picnic at Packer Dennis & Meredy’s home).
WHERE: NE corner of Lake Eola in downtown Orlando
TO SIGN-UP ON-LINE: Simply visit: http://walkflc.nationalmssociety.org/site/PageServer?pagename=WLK_FLC_Register (Team Name: "Packer Backers VS MS" Team Password: "pack")
A few of the CFPB club members saying (or wearing) "Cheese" before embarking on the MS Walk in 2008.Here's all you have to do:
ONE: Wear your favorite Green Bay Packers shirt so everyone knows you are part of the CFPB group.
TWO: Meet all of us at the northeast corner of Lake Eola (across from Panera Bread: corner of Robinson Street & N. Eola Drive) around 8:00am. Every year, local businesses help supply all participants with a generous amount of free food, snacks & drinks.
THREE: Bring a donation of any amount (ask for Meredy or Dennis Jenkins / Packer Backers) to help make a difference in the lives of those with Multiple Sclerosis. You can also pledge as much as you think you can raise and mail those donation directly to the MS Society at a later date.
FOUR: Walk begins at 9am! You can choose to walk the ‘short’ route (1 mile)
FIVE: Then we party! Beer, brats and potato salad to follow at around noon at the Jenkins' residence. (Directions will be distributed at the end of the walk.)
Cheesy smiles to match their head-wear. Besides, everyone knows that wearing your cheese hat while you walk for MS makes your trek aerodynamically smoother and faster!BONUS: The Central FL Packer Backer club would really love for you to come and join… so, we are going to be giving CFPB participants some free stuff too. We will be giving out: Free MP3 retractable-cord headsets (while they last), free Packer water bottles (while they last), AND… to whomever raises the most donations we will be giving you a $75 Green Bay Packer baseball style jersey! WOW!
Biggest MS donation gets this awesome Green Bay Packer baseball-style jersey! (Packer Mike and beer not included.)
We're hoping you'll be able to set aside a few hours on a Saturday morning to help raise some money and awareness in the battle against MS... and get a little exercise and fresh air at the same time! If you have any questions regarding the "2010 MS Walk," please feel free to call Meredy at 407-898-9060.
Multiple Sclerosis, known by many simply as MS, is a chronic and often disabling disease that attacks a person's central nervous system. The symptoms, severity, and path that the illness takes vary from person to person and may be difficult to predict. Today's research, however, is showing promise in bringing an easier life to the approximately 400,000 Americans with MS.
Thank you... and hopefully we'll see you Saturday morning, March 20th!
Go Pack! Beat MS!
