Minicon 46 are graciously allowing me space to set up the first official fundraising presence for Team Discworld. I've set up a Facebook Page for the Team, so if you have a FB, go forth and click the 'Like' button. If you'll be at the convention, stop by. I'm not sure exactly where they'll have me set up, but just look for the short redhead in the bright purple "Alzheimer's Walk 2009" shirt.

I'm super excited about the table at Minicon. In 2006, Sir Terry was a Guest of Honor and I had the chance to talk to him about his work with orangutan sanctuaries. He spent a good deal of the convention just walking around and mingling with people. It was awesome. I'm just thrilled beyond words that I'll be able to kick off this project at this particular convention.

In 2009, I did the Alzheimer's Memory Walk and the team I was part of raised nearly $3k.
In 2010, my mother died of Alzheimer's and I didn't do the Walk.. or anything, really.. for the remainder of the year.
In 2011, I am sponsoring a team for the Alzheimer's Walk for a Cure.

In honour of Sir Terry Pratchett, one of my favourite authors, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2007:

Team Discworld

Where: Bloomington, MN
When: Saturday, September 24, 2011
What: Walking the 1 mile or 3 mile course
Cosplay? Cosplay or jeans and t-shirts. It's all good. I'm going to be dressing as Beggar Queen Molly.
I wanna join the team! Click HERE and sign up.
I wanna support the team! Click HERE to make a monetary donation. If you can't throw some spare change our way, please help by spreading the word. I would love to have a huge crowd of Discworld fans show up for the walk.

I'm working with some MN SF/F conventions to see about getting space to pimp the team, but I'm starting late in the game for convention season, so we'll see what I can pull together.
