As you know, Walk sponsors contribute to you, and they get a tax deduction receipt for their donation. Even if you are not able to attend, or are unable to walk, just let us know you need a volunteer to walk for you. Together we can make a difference!

Please register everyone by June 20th on our new TeamRaiser website located at this link: http://vfcan.convio.net/site/TR?fr_id=1100&pg=entry.
