Virtual St. Jude Walk Success for Oregon ESA
Our Oregon team went above and beyond, raising $4, 415 to date!
There was an outpouring of love and suport for the St. Jude Walk/ run to End Childhood Cancer events that took place accross the country this year. ESA teams located where Walk/ Run events did not take place still had the opportunity to help the cause online!'
"We did a walk around the parking lot just to say we had joined the walk" said Judith Huntley, the 2016 Oregon Senior St. Jude Chairman.
Judith started early and sent out a May newsletter to Oregon ESA subrcribers about the effort which drove some to join team ESA of Oregon online. The team also gained a lot of support at Leadership from ESA members.
She was also able to link efforts for the St. Jude Walk/ Run with the Seattle Walk to raise awareness about the team and their virtual participation!
"Such a perfect example of how you can still have a successful team but no event in your area. They still got out and walked with their chapter(s). Amazing!" said Ashley Ramsdell the Sr. Specialist- Volunteer Development ALSAC/ St. Jude.
"(I) was proud of our efforts" said Judith.
You can make donations to the St. Jude Walk/ Run to End Childhood Cancer until December 31.
