One Week, One Mile, One Dollar – Walk AS One Challenge!
A family related to our organization is very generously sponsoring the prizes for this challenge as well as donating and sponsoring the annual “Walk AS One Cup” trophy! As we move from community group to non-profit charity, support like this means the world. From me, our future board members, and all who participate and volunteer – our deepest thanks.
This challenge is now closed. Stay tuned for next year’s Walk AS One Challenge!
The goal is to see how many friends you can enlist to walk one mile (or more) during one weekand donate one dollar (minimum) to the partner charity of your choice.
Sounds fairly simple right? How can your friends say no!
They do not have to register, they walk this mile (minimum) at any point during May 24th to May 31st and you get credit for that person’s participation in this challenge.
Use this form to sign people up (we just need to know these are real people and they have learned about A.S. and our walk to qualify.) The form they are signing or you are filling out has the information on top we just ask them to read through and acknowledge that they have been educated by you about A.S. and the family of diseases.
At the end of the week please submit your scanned sign up sheets to firstname.lastname@example.org and a receipt or acknowledgement from your charity of choice showing the dollars were donated! You may collect cash, checks, or online donations. You may collect those yourself and donate the full amount to the charity but we need to see the number of donated dollars meets or exceeds the number of participants.

The Walk AS One Cup!
The prize for the team with the highest ratio of steps to team size. This includes all registered team steps, Walk AS One Challenge steps, and qualifying Group Event steps. This prize is going to be called the annual “Walk AS One Cup”. The Walk AS One Cup will be a trophy that will have the name of this year’s winning team engraved upon it. Each team member will also receive a Certificate of Recognition and a WYASO decal for their participation.
The Team will get FB profile pics showing they were on the Walk AS One winning team, and the trophy will remain at the WYASO Corporate Headquarters. Kind of like the Stanley Cup, each year every Team will have the opportunity to win the “Annual Walk AS One Cup” and the bragging rights for a whole year! It will give the event a friendly rivalry for the competition in the fundraising week of the annual event. Remember – this is structured so that a team of any size can win because it is about getting people involved with a small donation of one week, one mile, one dollar and not about individual steps by a person with A.S. or a team step total count where some teams are larger than another. Get excited, get creative, and have fun most of all!
