How Can I Help?

I always get a lot of questions about how to participate during the 3-Day event if  you live too far away to cheer on walkers. Well, there is a way! Each walk has their own post office that receives mail for walkers and crew leading up to the event. I can tell you from past experiences, receiving mail is a huge boost of confidence and support! A letter, card, gift card for restaurants along the route, or even colored pictures are great.  They are all greatly appreciated! Hey Walkers, don't forget to check your mailbox!

Check out the Spectator Information page for information for each city.
Boston:  Deadline July 12th (sorry I am late on posting this!)
Cleveland:  Deadline July 19th
Chicago:  Deadline July 26th
Michigan:  Deadline August 2nd
Twin Cities:  Deadline August 9th
San Francisco Bay:  Deadline August 30th
Seattle:  Deadline September 6th
Washington D.C.:  Deadline TBD
Philadelphia:  Deadline TBD
Atlanta:  Deadline TBD
Tampa Bay:  Deadline TBD
Dallas/Fort Worth:  Deadline TBD
Arizona:  Deadline TBD
San Diego:  Deadline TBD

Be sure to follow the directions:  Envelopes only, please. No boxes or large packages. Mail must be postmarked no later than the deadline in order to ensure delivery at the 3-Day Camp Post Office. Please note:  This address is not the actual location of camp, but a PO Box for mail delivery only. Any mail that is not received by the 3-Day by the date above or retrieved by the participant after the event will be destroyed. 

In addition, there is a Sweet Dreams treat you can send to a participant: Send your participant sweet dreams with a personal note and a sweet treat. For a $10 donation, you can send a personal message, along with a chocolate treat, to your participant at camp. Follow this link for more information and to send a “Sweet Dreams” treat. This is only available for a limited time, so please make your “Sweet Dreams” treat donation by the deadline on each event page.

If you can't be at the event to cheer a walker on, you can still show your support in several ways. I hope you all will consider sending anyone you know who is participating a little something! I will keep this page updated as new spectator information becomes available.  

What would a post be with out a photo or two!
