Why Plan a Walkathon?

Picture of Steven proudly walking.

Are you considering the idea?  Mull these over… six reasons to plan a walkathon:

  1. They are an easy way to socialize.  A lot of people (like me) find it easier to make friends while they are moving.  The conversation comes more naturally than at a party.
  2. They are healthy.  Everyone gets out and moves.
  3. They are fun.  It’s basically a big theme party out doors.
  4. They appeal to all ages.  There’s plenty to do for children, and the calmer set can sit and watch the walkers go by.
  5. They can be a catalyst for a lot of publicity for your cause.
  6. They can be very lucrative.

Yes, it’s a lot of work.  However, a Walkathon can bring in good money and at the same time, provide a friendly, healthy, and fun event for your community.  I say plan well, but go for it!
