Dear LIFEWALK volunteers,
We are so excited to tell you about a new way to volunteer for LIFEWALK this year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing requirements, the 23rd Annual LIFE Walk/Run will be going VIRTUAL. That's right, we said VIRTUAL! We are excited because we realize we are TOO Big for 1 Day - so welcome to our 2020 LIFE Walk/Run Week! The week will include most of our events that you have come to love - like our LIFE Walk Cafe, Kids Corner, health fair, Kids Corner, and Circle of Life Garden, which honors our donors. Now you may be wondering how can I participate as a volunteer this year? We have three opportunities.
Show your support through social media. Promote the virtual walk/run and tell people how they can register to become a walker or runner. Get your friends, family, and co-workers to promote and participate as well. Follow us on Instagram at @detroitmottep or on Facebook at Gift of LIFE MOTTEP. Feel free to use #LIFEWALK2020 #TOOBIGFOR1DAY #iWasntThere
Take a picture in any previous LIFEWALK t-shirt and promote it on your social media and send it our way so we can highlight all of our amazing volunteers. Tell us about what you love most about volunteering for LIFEWALK. We want to hear from you! Send us your best photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Connect your volunteer efforts to COVID-19 whether that's donating food, PPE, or your time. We know COVID-19 has impacted so many, so if you have donated food, PPE, or even volunteered at another organization. Let us know. Communities of color are being impacted disproportionately when it comes to needing organs and this pandemic. So if there are ways to get involved let us know.
We wanted to give you options that educate, encourage, and help you enjoy this new virtual experience. So get involved, participate in the virtual walk/run, and promote all of the great opportunities that you can tune into all week. We look forward to seeing you at the kickoff on Saturday, July 25, 2020!
