The 3 Day Walk is August 18-20. I may not have mentioned that for a while!
They’ve set up something new this year, which involves walkers being able to receive mail while at camp each night. So, you can write me a letter! It doesn’t matter if you have or haven’t donated, a letter would still be awesome. You just have to have it postmarked by August 4th. That’s this Friday.
It doesn’t have to be anything special at all. I just know from experience that after walking 20 miles, it’s the little things (like letters, words of encouragement, hand-drawn pictures, etc.) that keep us going for the next day.
Here’s the address:
Breast Cancer 3-Day Camp Post Office – Twin Cities
Attn: Wendy (and my last name)*
1200 W. 35th Ave Suite #360
Chicago, IL 60609
The letters and postcards will be delivered to the 3-Day Camp Post Office and I can pick them up there each evening.
* All letters must be postmarked no later than 2 weeks out from the event. (i.e. 8/4)
* The 3-Day location and the participant name MUST be clearly marked in the address
* No boxes/packages; envelopes only!
* Letters will not be mailed to participants after the event. Any unclaimed letters will be disposed of.
Anyway, think it over. And if you have a couple of free minutes, write me a quick letter! Be creative or don’t – just the thought is amazing. Plus, it’ll be fun for all of us.
*I have the same last name as this person. (Sorry. I’m still kinda hiding from Google!)
