EVENT DATE Feb 14, 2016

THE STORY:

Why Are We Fundraising?

In April, we will be holding an event in Washington DC known as "Lymphedema Lobby Days". This will be our third Lobby  Days in as many sessions of Congress. Over 100 volunteers are expected to travel from around the country to lobby Members of Congress for the passage of the Lymphedema Treatment Act (LTA). Lobby Days has traditionally garnered dozens of critical new cosponsors for the LTA, however, the event is not without expense. This is where you come in! Most people cannot join us in Washington (though all are welcome) but you can help support our lobbying efforts by donating today! Read more about Lobby Days by clicking here. 

How Can You Help? There Are Two Options to Chose From: 

1.Donate: Just click the "DONATE" button to make a secure online donation. If you’d feel more comfortable donating by check, you can make checks payable to The Lymphedema Advocacy Group and mail them to: The Lymphedema Advocacy Group, PO Box 1682, Carrboro, NC 27510.

OR...

2.Join “The Team”: If you are feeling even a little adventurous (and we hope you are), you could click the “Fundraise for This Campaign” button and walk along side the Lymphedema Advocacy Group board members in your hometown. When you join you can "edit" your walk page to personalize it like Sophia's below. You can watch a brief "how to" video we've prepared by clicking here. 

You can then easily share the fundraiser links via social media (like Facebook, Twitter, or email) with friends and family. Let them know that you have joined the walk and ask if they might support you and your cause with a donation. 

You can also print a poster or a flyer to handout by clicking here. 

As far as the walk, you can walk 10 feet or 10 miles! You can walk on your own or bring a friend (or two or twenty)! You can walk indoors or out! Whatever you like and whatever works for you.

We just ask that you spread the word, walk on February 14th, and donate! 

If you’d like some LTA swag (like t-shirts and bags) you can pick them up by clicking here!   

Send us a pic of you on the walk and we’ll upload it to our Facebook page! 

Note: Contributions or gifts to the Lymphedema Advocacy Group are not tax deductible. As a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, the Lymphedema Advocacy Group engages in lobbying activity, in keeping with its mission, for passage of the Lymphedema Treatment Act.
