Walkathon Fundraising Letter


Please feel free to customize and share the following letter to help raise support.


Dear Friends, Family, Colleagues, and Select Patients,

On September 11th, I will be walking in the fourth annual “Illinois Walks for Acupuncture” walk-a-thon.  The goal of this event is to raise much-needed funds for the promotion of the profession in Illinois, and these funds will be used to help our professional association do the work that is so needed to help bring acupuncture to everyone and to maintain high quality practice in Illinois.

We’re raising money to make the following possible:

  • Updating the Illinois Acupuncture Practice Act to reflect all of the modalities we use in East Asian Medicine
  • Collaborating with other state associations in national activities as it pertains to acupuncture and East Asian Medicine
  • Advocating for patient safety by maintaining the highest standards for those who practice East Asian Medicine
  • Continuing the foundational work of ILaaom

It would mean a great deal to me to have your support in this endeavor!  Any donation from $5 to $5000 (just a thought!) will help move our work forward.  If you are so inspired, please visit our website to donate in the manner that is most convenient (Credit card, eCheck). If you’d like to walk (or virtually walk) with us to help support our efforts, register on our website and create your own webpage!

Thank you for your support!


Yours Truly
