LOVE WALK FOR THE COOK FAMILY
Please join Friends of the Cook Family on October 18th when we will walk to raise money to help offset medical bills incurred by William Cook. Our goal is to raise $50,000 or more which would cover approximately one half of William out-of-pocket expenses for chemo-therapy for the treatment of small lymphocytic lymphoma. These are expenses that health insurance will not cover. William Cook is one of only two remaining dairy farmers in Mecklenburg County and his wife Carolyn is an elementary school teacher in Mooresville.
They represent the American spirit of hard work, faith, and family. While both are employed full-time, they also handle the challenges of raising two sons (ages 17 and 24) with acute cerebral palsy. Both of these young men are cared for and live at home.
The event will take place at Bailey Road Park in Cornelius. Registration begins at 8:30 AM, and the walk starts at 9:30AM. The recommended registration donation is $20.00 for adults, and $10.00 for those under 18.
Attendees are encouraged to seek sponsors for their walk. Prizes are being donated for the largest donations raised by Adults, Students, and Pre-teens.
Corporate sponsorships are available at several levels: Platinum Event Sponsor, Gold Event Sponsors, Silver Event Sponsors, Benefactors and Friends of the Cook Family. Potential advertising benefits for these corporate and individual sponsors include signage at the event, acknowledgment in print, cable and broadcast TV, and radio. The most recent corporate sponsors include Target, Farm Bureau Insurance, Peoples Bank, Robert and Louise Cashion, and In~Motion Marketing. All monies raised will go directly to William and Carolyn Cook in the spirit of altruism.
We are not producing Tee shirts or caps to recognize the event. The Cooks are our focus. We hope they will be yours on October 18th.
If you are unable to walk and would like to make a donation, please use the contacts above. :)
