Upcoming June 2010 Get Started Meetings in the San Diego Area!
June 2010 is going to be a busy month in the San Diego area for 3-Day walkers! I have been thoroughly impressed with the quality and quantity of events to help us geared up for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure...and I've only attended a few!
The Get Started Meetings are described on the official Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure website as an event to "provide you with the information and inspiration you are looking for." These meetings are for newbies or people who are walking veterans. You can register at the meeting and receive your registration kit right away. If you are already registered, the meetings will also cover fundraising information. From personal experience attending a Get Started Meeting last year, I loved watching the touching videos and slide shows about the walk, meeting other walkers and just being around people as excited as I was about the event!
There are several Get Started Meetings scheduled in the San Diego Area this month. Just follow the highlighted link to head to that event's page:
-Tonight! Tuesday, June 1, 2010 from 6:00pm - 7:30pm: Carlsbad, California at the Hilton Garden Inn at 6450 Carlsbad Boulevard, 92011.
