Each of the six Walks depends on the volunteer efforts of a local steering committee to plan and cordinate numerous details, such as team and walker recruitment; entertainment; food and beverages, prizes, registration, logistics, and publicity. There is a place and a role for everyone who would like to get involved. If you can't commit to a long-term assignment, there are many one-time tasks, such as distributing Walk brochures or working at a water stop on the day of the Walk. Let us know how you'd like to help by calling Kendra Albers at the chapter office: 414.479.8800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
