Why re-event the wheel?!?
I know you are sitting back scratching your head on this one... Honestly, how many times have you started something and instead of researching and pulling from resources that are available to you, you have ended up re-enventing the wheel? Well, the 3-day is no different. Once you have set up your account you should take a virtual tour through all of the tabs and get familiar with all that is available to you. Under the "Learn More" tab there are 10. Yes, I said 10 ways to get information and help in areas that you may not be familiar with or think you could use a little help in. Believe it or not they actually have a fundraising ideas library just in case you are struggling with coming up with ideas to raise your donations. If you still can't find what you are looking for you can pick up your phone and call 800-996-3DAY. ( This number will become a number that you will likely use often. So you might just want to add it to your speed dial now.) ( It will save you time later...) Ok , here's the BEST PART! you get to talk to a REAL LIVE PERSON! ( Imagine that!) I should have had you sit down before giving you that little tid-bit of information. Sorry, I will warn you next time before I send a Zinger your way! A friendly, warm, inviting voice will be there to help you and answer all of your questions. You can also go on Facebook and find lots of wonderful 3-Day participants that are willing to help you along the way. You will be amazed how quickly that "stranger" will become part of your extended family or friend base. Another way to meet and talk to people prior to the event is to go to one of the meetings or training walks in your area. We all were first timers at one time. So, don't be afraid to reach out and get the answers to your questions. You will find that the only "Silly or Crazy" question is the one that you didn't get the answer to.
