We are having our 11th San Antonio Walk for PKD. It wasn't until about our 6th year until we got our first strong sponsorship. Seems like once you get a leading sponsor for the community, that helps. We have really had luck with getting University Health System, University Transplant Center, University of Texas Health Science Center on board. This helps obtain local sponsors - now HEB (huge here in Texas) and Valero. I have a rule of "3" that works for me, I will ask three times, and then move on. BE SURE to put your story with the request. I actually had a requested sponsor call me after reading my story. This lead to an appointment and looking like we will have Whataburger on board for the first time ever this year (fingers crossed). I approached them for the Penny Kid's Dash since they are interested in children's disabilities. I would be happy to visit with you more. We are up to about $12,500 already for our walk in September... nice place to be.

I tried to attach my story but says format not accepted. will check on this one!

Thanks for sharing that challenge because I am sure that every coordinator deals with this to some extent. I have two suggestions for you.
1. Hold a mandatory training for people that are performing key volunteer roles such as registration. I know it requires an additional time commitment but even if it is a conference call I think it is beneficial. If you have volunteered before it is required, because processes have to change over time and it is good to get everyone on the same page.
2. Find a key volunteer that can be responsible for staffing and assigning volunteers. This person can field most of the questions and direct the volunteers on Walk day and free up the Walk Coordinator to host the event and be there for the big questions.

If anyone else has ideas, I would love to hear how you handle this issue.

Though, they do need those repetitive reminders to call in. Thanks for sharing your experience Patti. :D

I usually give a couple of dates to planning committee members and then we go with the best choice. We do 2 teleconference calls in May and June and then a meeting at the walk site for last meeting. I believe this would be good for chapter events as people can call in from office, home, etc.
