October 1st is right around the corner, which means that ACTS' annual IWALK event is quickly approaching. For the first time, the 5K walk/run and family festival to benefit ACTS' programs will be held at Potomac Town Center in Woodbridge, VA, and Wegmans is the Platinum Sponsor. So far ACTS, with the help of Image Church, has already secured $35,000 in sponsorship funds. Last year, IWALK brought in $44,000 (net) to help local families struggling to make ends meet.;To get the message out this year, Kate Shifflett of Image Church has put together promotional IWALK packs called "IWALK-in-a-box.". These promo packs will include;
- A cover sheet with how to use the promo kit
- Registration forms
- Pledge forms
- Fundraising guide
- Sponsorship package
- Promo cards
Kate Shifflett said, "The idea is for friends of ACTS to become Ambassadors of IWALK. With IWALK-in-a-Box they have all the tools in hand to engage others, start a team, and set up a registration and fundraising drive."
Last night, the ACTS Board received their IWALK-in-a-box kits.
