We could not be more excited that we already have a good number of members on our team!!! Wouldn’t it be incredible to get to 100 people? We are already half way there! That would be a minimum of $180,000 from our team alone in the effort! That would be nothing short of AMAZING!
There are certain obligations to being on the KRTY team, so please read carefully:
First, even though you joined team KRTY and it is our goal that EVERYONE walks, we would like to remind each of you that by joining the Avon Walk, YOU, have made a commitment to raise a minimum of $1,800. With that said, we suggest everyone start fundraising now. As a team, we have 2 big fundraisers (our benefit concert and a SJ Giants night), but those efforts will benefit us as a TEAM, not necessarily as individuals. There are many ways to fundraise. The Avon site gives you ideas as well I encourage you to reach out to fellow team members for ideas that they have done or are planning.
As part of being on TEAM KRTY, we like to do things as a TEAM, we arrange for our own bus that drives us to SF and to and from the Walk TOGETHER, we stay in the same hotel, we have a team dinner on Event Eve, Friday night, we wear a team shirt the first day, and we all wear pink cowboy hats. Some of these TEAM things have a cost that we want you to be aware of now so you will be prepared.
As a TEAM we do the following,
Team Bus: TBD. Avon as well offers a bus as well for only $20. However the Avon Bus is only for SF to and from the hotel (not the one we stay in) to the Walk.
Our Bus picks us up Friday Afternoon at Tina’s (Team Captain) house and takes us to SF to our hotel. (One block from the event eve check in hotel. It will then also take us to and from the Walk Saturday and again to the Walk Sunday morning. If you want to ride on the KRTY bus at all, at any point (even if it’s just up to SF), you MUST contribute the $25 since cost for our bus is split up per person. If you are not sure, we suggest you wait to purchase the Avon Bus wristband until event eve if that’s what you decide. We can’t give refunds if you buy the wristband and then decide not to ride their bus and pay to ride ours as well.
Hotel Room: The hotel situation can be spilt up in different ways depending on how many people you want to stay in a room with.
4 people in a room
2 people in a room
**If you are planning on coming to Event Eve on Friday night, (where those that have not met goal get to check in, we take group pictures, and just to get and see all the goodies they have there as well as attend our team dinner) You will likely need to stay in the hotel at least for that night.
There certainly is the option On Saturday night you can choose to stay in the hotel again or you can “tent it” at the campground with other walkers. Last year, most of the team members stayed in the hotel, but if you want to camp, that is completely your choice.( It’s a great first time experience).
Team Dinner: TBD The menu will be a buffet similar to this past year which will include pasta, a meat, and a fish along with sides. If you have spouses or someone staying in your room with you, they are welcome to join in on dinner, they will just have to pay the $55 as well and we will need to know ahead of time.
KRTY Pink Cowboy Hat: $25 Everyone has to wear our signature Pink Cowboy Hat. If you already have one from a past walk with us, you do not need to purchase one. However if you are a new team member or just want a new one, we will have to order you one.
KRTY Team Shirt: FREE The Team Shirt is a gift to our team members from us. Everyone on the team will get one.
And finally, The Training Walks. As a team, we do “scheduled” training walks usually 1 weekend day each week. Our first one is January 29th at 9am. We will meet at the Campbell Percolation Ponds Los Gatos Creek Park Dell Ave, Campbell .
We also encourage you to train on your own time as well. Please utilize the fact you’re on a team, especially a large one and walk together other than the organized weekly walks. Reach out to the team members and set walks up.
