Info and plea for the First Illinois “Lyme Disease Walk” September 27, 2009

Good Evening Everyone!


I am so excited and passionate about our first walk in Illinois and that we’re bringing awareness to our state with this debilitating disease we all suffer from.  We went to Independence Grove this past Friday and it’s amazing!!!!!  The route of the walk is an open area pathway and it surrounds a beautiful lake.  We’re also securing a site so everyone will get in for free and the view is so serene, right on the lake.  It got my blood flowing but we haven’t had much help and I’m desperately asking each of you to do some part.  I know most of us feel terrible, but the three of us that were there that day were having bad days but knew that we had to persevere in order to make this happen.  Please email me to let me know if you can even work from home by telephone, anything will help.


In regards to our first teleconference, I have some good news and some bad news…………….The good news is:  Ortho Molecular has become our first $500.00 sponsor!!!!!  We do have other sponsors coming on board as of this weekend as well.  The bad news is:  Only one person called in to participate after sending out over 100+ emails to everyone for our first teleconference, very disappointing.  Maybe there wasn’t enough notice, so I’m letting you know now that our next teleconference will be Sunday July 26th at 7:00pm.  I will send out the number once we get it with the code this week, please, please try to attend and call in.  We have a HUGE opportunity in front of us to make some noise and raise awareness, we need you and your friends or family to come on board and help out.


Right now I’m pleading with everyone to get any donations possible whether it be monetary or items from businesses to raffle off.  We have a goal and are far from it.  Please see my webpage and either create your own or use mine and email it to everyone you know  You can create your own team or join mine, please sign up as soon as possible so we have an idea of how many tee-shirts we need to order.  Also, encourage your friends and family to sign up for the walk as soon as possible. 


We desperately need sponsors “like yesterday” to include them on tee-shirts and bags by the end of the month.  Attached is a sample letter that I have created for myself to go around this week approaching local businesses to help support our efforts.  Also attached is the flyer to pass out or leave at grocery stores, chiropractors offices, doctors offices, vitamin stores, etc……………….We’re also looking for donations of 10 x 10 canopies if you have any and also food/water to provide to the walkers.


Call me directly at 847-833-5962 or email me at to ask any questions.  I know this is going to be big event and heavily covered by the media, with your help, this will be a HUGE success in raising awareness.  If you have any other ideas, please bring them to the table.


God’s Blessings on all of us as we work together sharing the same passion.  I pray that everyone is having herx-free days and is able to do their part.


Love, Kimberly Frank
