Federation Family:


With National Convention upon us, our national student division is gearing
up for an exciting 50th anniversary diamond celebration!

Calling all 2017 National Convention attendees: we all know how much we walk
each day. Meeting to meeting, running to grab a quick bite to eat, and
rushing to another seminar. Wouldn't it be awesome to raise some money for
the future leaders of the NFB, or better yet the current leaders just by
doing what we do each day?. WALK! 


This year, we are proud to announce the inaugural 2017 NABS Walk-A-Thon.
This fundraising effort will be held on Wednesday, July 12, during the 2017
National Federation of the Blind National Convention.


So what exactly is a Walk-A-Thon? This will be a coordinated effort in which
you create your own fundraising platform. Friends and family, or those who
believe in our movement, they could be total strangers!, will ''pledge''
some amount per mile. These pledges represent a monetary value that your
supporters promise to donate based on how many miles you walk throughout the
day. The amount pledged is based on what the supporter wants to give. All
you will have to do is use some sort of fitness wearable or a fitness app on
your phone to record your distance between 7am and 10pm Wednesday, the 12th.
It is that simple. The recording of your individual distance will start at
7am, or whenever you wake up, and end at the conclusion of our inaugural
NABS Olympics! Once the clock strikes 10pm, participants will record their
steps with NABS leaders. The top three winners will be rewarded with
fabulous prizes and recognition!
