Well ladies I wont be able to make it for the walk on saturday. I've been pondering the March of Dimes walk the following weekend (either at ESU or Dorney Park) one is on saturday and the other sunday I think.

I'm jealous but I'm going to miss you ladies on saturday morning. I'll be thinking about you in the morning when I'm running around the hospital.

I'll have to ask my hubby....i know that adults can volunteer, and him and i have taken some of the kids off campus for birthday dinner, but i'm not sure about children volunteering. And if he doesn't know, he'll find out for sure by the 18th and can fill you in at the walk.

hey... I know this is off topic, but can parents and children volunteer there together for anything? I do lunch duty at the kids school pretty often, I do Safe Harbor lunch duty once a month. I'd love to get my kids involved in volunteer activities this summer (being 7 and 5) but am not sure what we can do as a group. My sister in law (17) can join us too, so that it's two teams of one kid, one "adult" volunteer..... Any suggestions???? I think I'll start a new thread...

I think I'm scheduled to work that day but I did a little switch of days this week for my lady that works on my days off so I should be able to just switch a day with her I think. Boy I really need to kick it up....I'm afraid I gained like 4-5 pounds this week. I really hope its just sodium weight though.

so ladies... the new year has begun.... and... it's still cold and snowy... so, we're gonna do a 5K and we're needing to prepare.... anyone have any ideas? I was thinking that once we start to thaw out a little we can walk in any number of parks together. What times work for everyone out there? I'm a SAH so I'm flexible other than the kids activities but I have a very supportive husband that is willing to do overtime if necessary to help me reach my goals!

depending on the weather, maybe we can try to meet once a week at different parks. i'm in macungie and close to numerous parks but it would not be a bother to drive to one new to me! maybe we can start this after the new year.

I can walk in the mall for hours on end! I was more worried that is was like one of those races where people are going to knock you over and such if you don't go fast enough

It's not really too far. It's shorter than IRT which is 5+ miles... a 5K works out to a little over 3 miles. Walking about an hour to an hour and a half.... think about walking in the mall can you go for a few hours? Then you'll probably do great!

Yeah, 5K isn't bad--it's a little over 3 miles. I walked one last summer, and did fine. And even if the 3 miles sounds scary, everyone has til April to get ready! ;-)

I did the walk last year. I think it was 5K, which is not really as far as in sounds. But it is really crowded, not the Breast Cancer walk, but still is alot of people. Last year my team started walking before the offical start cause we had kids with us and they were getting a little out of control and some of them were afraid of the star wars charactors that were there to start the walk, not sure if that was the best choice when dealing with kids with autism. I will probably do it again. We had alot of fun and the parkway is nice place to walk. If you haven't gone to the parkway to take a walk I would recommend it, not now though it is all set up for the lights in the parkway.

I'm thinking we should do it as a group/team. It would be a great way to meet fellow Spark members and a healthy way to spend time!

I'm not sure about this one . . . I did the Light the Night walk in the fall, and that was only about a mile or mile and a half. I tried looking on the Walk Now website to see if it was listed, but I couldn't find it.
