Set your fundraising goal that you wish to reach by the walk-n-wheel on July 12, 2018. We've written a little bit to get you started, but you should take a moment to personalize your page with your story and a picture of yourself. Be sure to keep your page updated!
Share your page on social media and send out emails to all your family and friends to invite them to support you with a donation. We've written a few emails to get you started, but your friends and family want to hear from you so we encourage you to personalize your emails as well. Be sure to share your personalized page often!
Check-in! On Thursday, July 12th, Walk-n-Wheel check-in will begin at 3:30pm in the Maryland Foyer on the 5th floor of the Rennaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel. This will be the time to pick up t-shirts, hand in any additional donations and receive your wristbands for entry into the aquarium. Team Captains will be given the team sign, t-shirts and wristbands for their entire team.
Walk-n-Wheel! At 5:30pm, we will meet outside the hotel at the corner of South Street and E. Pratt Street and the walk-n-wheel will officially begin. The route will follow E. Pratt Street two blocks before turning onto Pier 3 to the finish line located in a courtyard in front of the National Aquarium. The entire walk-n-wheel route is half-mile from start to finish, but please do not push yourself. If you cannot complete the course, tell an OIF staff member.

MEET YOUR CO-CHAIRS:
"The thing about fundraising is, people are often more likely to give generously if it is a cause you are passionate about. With OI being such a big part of our lives, friends were more than willing to donate to help us reach our fundraising goal. No amount is too small, as it all goes towards the OIF being able to continue doing amazing things to support the OI community. So when you set up your team page from the templates available, make sure to include your personal story. The OI community is like family to us, and I believe that comradeship resonates with all of us. I can't wait to help everyone reach their fundraising goals for 2018!"
