The final T-shirt order will be placed tomorrow for Evanwalk. If you plan to attend, but haven't yet registered -- please send an email to walk@evanwalk.com and let us know your shirt size. Then be sure to mail in your registration form. We don't want anyone to miss out on a shirt that would like one.

Thank you to Mid-America Advertising and Prairie Heart Institute for returning as Evanwalk sponsors!


Evanwalk update!

Dear Family & Friends,
Thank you so much for your continued support of Evanwalk. We are humbled so many of you are choosing to join us on Sunday, April 28 to honor Evan's memory and help us raise money for St. John's Children's Hospital. If you're planning to attend but haven't yet mailed in your registration form, please do so as soon as possible. We need to place our Evanwalk bag and T-shirt orders over the next few days. Registration and sponsor forms may be downloaded at www.evanwalk.com.

If you mailed your registration or sponsor form and it was returned, we apologize. We have been notified of two such incidents and confirmed with the Athens post office that they inadvertently returned items. If you did receive your form back, please email us at walk@evanwalk.com and we will register you via e-mail and make alternate arrangements to collect your envelope. Thankfully, most mail has been delivered correctly. Big shout out to the Tebrugge Clan who registered 16 family members!

Plans are shaping up for a spectacular Evanwalk! We have a fun new craft planned for the kids, the Bee Observation Hive presented by Arvin and Colleen Pierce will be back, BOS Dog will be shaking paws, and new this year -- the musical talents of Michael Taylor as well as a Photo Booth courtesy of Barbara and Joe Lokaitis.

Along with the all new Evanwalk T-shirt, walkers will find other goodies in their bags including do. Active Products courtesy of sponsor BJ Grand Salon & Spa and delicious microwave popcorn from sponsor Burrus Hybrids.

If you're planning to bake for the Bake Sale, please drop Lori an e-mail at bakesale@evanwalk.com and let her know what you're planning to contribute. Bake sale goods may be dropped off from 4-6 p.m. in the Gathering Space at St. Agnes Church on Saturday, April 27. Or, they may be dropped off early the morning of the event at Erin's Pavilion.

The pre-sale raffle of the iPad, courtesy of sponsor BOS, are selling like hot cakes. Thank you to Ann Holmes and all those who have sold and bought tickets! The day of the event, we will also be selling raffle tickets for a 50/50 chance and a professionally designed patio pot with plants courtesy of Annette Bennett of Gardening by Design.

The Messages to Heaven balloon release is sponsored once again by the Wort Kids (Lynda, Sheryl, Eric, Brian and Denise). Thank you!

Thank you to all of our volunteers - who care so much and work so tirelessly to help make the day a success. And, to the HIPsters for sharing their talents and support of the event.
