Have you gone OVER YOUR GOAL?

The jump is still two weeks away and I’m seeing a lot of Heroes and Sidekicks who have reached or even GONE OVER goal!

If that’s happened to you – it’s time to raise your goal…nothing will raise more money than the email that says “I’m only $100 from my goal! Please donate today!”

SO if you have gone over goal (check here to see) – you can either log into your participant center OR email Karen at kfinnegan@alz.org or call 800-272-3900 to have your goal increased.

Let’s blow this event OUT OF THE WATER!

What is Jump Day going to be like?

10:00-12:00- HEROES AND SIDEKICKS arrive and check in and set up their tents. Coffee/snacks served under the covered pavilion. After you check in you will assigned a Group Number, and will jump in the order assigned.

12:00 PM – We will have some brief announcements and then call the TOP THREE JUMPERS to the front of the line.

12:15 PM – the jump will start!

What to bring:

1. A TENT – this is STRONGLY recommended. While we will have tents available to change in, due to the large number of Heroes this year, we cannot promise that there will not be a LINE unless you bring your own private phone booth or fortress of solitude. Do yourself a favor and get yourself a small pop up tent.

2. FOOTWEAR. You do NOT want to jump without an old pair of sneakers, flip flops, stilettoes (we don’t judge) covering your feet.

3. TOWELS and/or BLANKETS (and something to wrap yourself in while you are waiting in line)

4. Warm, dry clothes to change into after the jump (including an additional pair of shoes).

PS if you have been smart enough to recruit a Sidekick – forward this list on to THEM and tell them to get to work. Their job is making sure that their Hero is as comfortable as possible at the jump.
