Dear Friend,

Join us for our 4th Annual "Walk for Wellness" and show your commitment to the importance of promoting emotional well-being for ALL New Jerseyans!

Registration includes free breakfast and lunch, a "Walk for Wellness" T-shirt and tickets for the post walk raffle.
We cordially invite you to get involved.

Print this flyer and post it in as many places as you can think of...for example, where you get your morning coffee, your gym, your favorite restaurant, your church, temple, or mosque, your agency, business, or self help center.

Be a walker: Sign up and get financial sponsorship from family, friends, colleagues. Print the Walk for Wellness Contributor's Sheet or log on to our 2011 MHANJ Walk for Wellness website to create a personal Walk for Wellness Donor Page.

Here are some great tips about how to ask for a contribution:
Sponsor a walker: Make a financial pledge to support a walker. Log on to 2011 MHANJ Walk for Wellness website to search for your donor or visit their personal Walk for Wellness Donation Page.

Build a walking team: Sign up your friends and family to walk and get their own contributors. If you like, you can walk under your own banner. Print the Walk for Wellness Team Registration Form or log on to 2011 MHANJ Walk for Wellness website to register and build your team. Here's some great information about how to build your team!
