Basically, its a Walk around your local Six Flags Park to raise money for curing Childhood Cancer. The main charity, Cure Kids Cancer, works with local hospitals to provide funds to treat, house, and hopefully cure cancer. At SFGA, its Children's Memorial Hospital. So I want to hear from all of you out there if any of you are doing this great event.
Go to walkintheparks.org to sign up!

I simply wanted to get the word out because Walk in the Parks has not done a great job advertising this wonderful event. It became a big deal in Illinois because a 7 year old girl asked Oprah (a Chicagoan) to join her team. While SFGA and SFGAdv do well with participants (likely because of their locations), the smaller SF parks do not get the amount of participants.
To give to my team, I guess you need to give under my name because this year's site does not seem to give to teams, just individuals.
By the way Robert, Is there anyway I can buy a TPI button or pin from you to wear proudly at this and other SF events (for press days, etc)? I would wear a tshirt, but Walk in the Parks makes you wear their tshirt. I am willing to pay for that (as I think many others would!)
Still looking for teammates......
Still looking for teammates!

The "big gun" finally joined and is raising money. Yes, I am talking about the 8 year old who has raised over 10,000 over the last two times doing it. In fact, she even got Oprah to help her out last year!
Help me keep up with her! Currently, I am only $2 in front of her! I knew this was going to happen :)
Oh well, its for a good cause! Her goal is also 5X mine!
But you are telling me that nobody on the greatest Theme Park website is doing this? Come on now! There has to be some SF fans! I was expecting some SFGAdv people or something!
I am getting my pants beaten off me again by this cute little girl who is just killing everybody in raising money. Its for a good cause though! She even got Oprah to help!
