We are just two weeks away from the 1st annual 1 Million+ Steps 4 OCD Awareness Walk. Already, 140 fundraisers and 49 teams have joined together with their friends, family, and colleagues to raise over $35,000 for the IOCDF!!!
The response from the OCD and related disorder community has been overwhelming! We banded together as a community to support the programs of the IOCDF — we have posted our walk pages on Facebook and Twitter and many have shared their personal stories on their fundraising pages — in doing so, we are helping others to better understand OCD and related disorders and thereby we are changing the perception that people have of OCD.
Denis’ journey is our journey too. While he is out walking for his son Nathaniel, I want all of us to keep walking along with him.
Thank you to all of you for being part of this journey. If you think that you have already raised all you can — we thank you for that. But if think you can do more (we think you can), let’s see if you can help meet our challenge! Check out our fundraising tools here, for some extra help.
In Boston, we are hoping to have at least 300 walkers join us on June 8th, so we can show the OCD community’s strength in numbers. If you live in New England, can you join us, and bring a friend (or two, or ten)?
Tell your friends that walking is easy as 1-2-3:
- Register online at iocdf.org/WALKboston. You can register on your own, or create a team to walk and fundraise with. We will also have on-site registration at Boston walk on June 8, starting at 8am, though we encourage you to register online in advance.
- Start fundraising in advance of the walk! Walkers who raise at least $50 get a commemorative walk T-shirt, and walkers who attend our walk in Boston will be entered in our raffle to win some amazing prizes from Brooks Running and other local businesses. Click here to learn how.
- Join us in Boston on June 8, 2013, as we take 1 Million+ Steps for OCD Awareness!
