Rainbow Missions is going to host a first ever Walkathon event on May 20. Our fundraising team is so excited about the event. Even though it involved a lot of preparation work, such as finding sponsorship, designing posters, creating a promotion video etc., we had fun during the planning process. Let’s see what our team thinks about the event……
I have never participated in a walkathon before. I didn’t know what to expect. One day, when I was at the Luther Burbank Park for the first time to take some photos, I realized the park is so big that it has a lot to offer. I am very excited to have my first walkathon there! I can’t wait to see everyone there, with or without the blindfold!
I am so glad to have a chance to participate in the first walkathon event hosted by Rainbow Missions. One day, our fundraising team went to the Luther Burbank Park and tried to experience the walk. When I blindfolded my eyes, I was totally insecure and I really felt not good. Through the event, I understand more about how the blind people live and take care of themselves and experience how they feel when they cannot see. So… come and join us. Let us do something for this group of people!
It is difficult to start a new project! This is how I am going to describe this walkathon! Two years ago, RM started to plan a charity walk for the younger generation. However, the idea was put aside due to many factors. It was not until the beginning of this year did we finally determine to host this event. Since this is our first time to organize this type of event, I have done a lot of data collection and consultation, hoping no mistake is made. During preparation, every detail is a lesson to me. Now it’s promotion time. I hope to see a lot of people to participate. This will not only raise money for the children with disabilities in China, but is also a personal experience by simulating a blind person walking in the dark by using eye-mask during the walk. It is such a meaningful activity! I am earnestly looking forward to your participation.
