Thank you Judy Russell. Your promotion of the Preserve the Pensions Fun Walk and the generous offers of sponsorship you have received have inspired us.
We are changing things up!
Instead of a group walk, we have four sponsored walkers for you to choose from: Judy Russell of The Legal Genealogist, D. Joshua Taylor and Kenyatta Berry on behalf of Genealogy Roadshow and Ed Donakey of Family Search.
These four walkers will be competing for your sponsorship to see which of them can raise the most funds for the Preserve The Pensions campaign.
And while we hope those of you who intended to walk will get out and enjoy all that San Antonio has to offer, we ask that you commit to sponsoring one of our celebrity walkers instead.
Judy, Josh, Kenyatta and Ed will walk Saturday morning August 30th at 6:30am. (That’s right Judy, you’ll still have to get up early, that hasn’t changed!)
If you happen to be up at what Judy lovingly calls “oh dark thirty” I hope you’ll consider seeing them off from their starting point at the front of the Henry B Gonzales Convention Center.
Every dollar raised in support of our walkers goes directly to the Preserve The Pensions fund. Every dollar is matched first by FGS, then again by Ancestry. Every $25.00 sponsorship becomes a $100.00 contribution to the preservation of this incredibly important collection of War of 1812 pensions.
Now all you have to decide is which of these four amazing individuals will get your support!
Show attendees, please stop by the Preserve The Pensions booth 506, 508.
Donate $25.00 to sponsor your favorite walker and pick up your T-Shirt. (Shirts available while they last.)
For those not attending the show, please visit our donate page at https://www.preservethepensions.org/donate
You’ll see a section marked “Honor and Tribute” where you can select the walker you’d like to sponsor. After the convention we’ll coordinate with you on T-shirt size and shipping.
