We've received several common questions regarding Nolan's Walk for Williams.
1. How do we donate to the walk since we can't attend?
Go to www.walk4williams.org. In bold, there will be 2 options to either "register to walk" or "donate to a walk." Once you've selected "donate to a walk," you will be given a list of all the walks around the USA that are happening this year. Select the Indiana: Plainfield one, and you will be able to donate to the walk that way.
2. How much of the money will go to Nolan?
Brandon and I aren't having this walk to raise money for Nolan. ALL money will go to the Williams Syndrome Association in honor of Nolan. Our purpose is to raise money for the WSA and to raise awareness about Williams Syndrome. Of course some have been adamant at other points in Nolan's life about giving to him to help with medical expenses, and we appreciate that, however, at this point the money goes to the WSA.
3. How do we go about getting sponsors? or How far is the walk?
This is NOT a walk a thon. However, if you are a registered walker who wants to get sponsors, please email us a firstname.lastname@example.org for a sponsor form. Those who register to walk do not need to get sponsors, but you can if you would like. The walk will be a relatively short (approx. 1 mile) route where we will gather and walk together to raise awareness. After the organized short walk, people are more than welcome to continue to walk for as long as they would like. Our setup will have a relatively flexible schedule as we want people to come and enjoy themselves and with their families.
