Thanks to everyone who has signed up and affiliated with our Light the Night walk team so far. We’ve now concluded our promotional Registration Week, but we’re still signing up new teams and walkers, so if you have yet to affiliate, please consider doing so!
Registration Week was very successful. Between July 7 and 14, we added 237 new walkers. We now have more than 670 walkers signed up, and have raised nearly $30,000—$60,000 after it is matched by the Stiefel family! Not quite enough to get Hemant Mehta and PZ Myers tattooed, or Todd Stiefel a mohawk, but as we approach the dates for this year’s walks we’ll keep encouraging kindhearted freethinkers to join up with challenges and incentives. And who knows—maybe the bloggers will cut their hair and get inked anyway!
A big congratulations to Kim Ellington of the Triangle Freethought Society for winning the Kindle Fire in the raffle drawing, and to Mike Mei of the Chicago Area Secular Student Alliance for winning the American Express gift card for signing up the most new members! The Fellowship of Freethought and CFI Indiana also both had impressive registration numbers over the course of the week.
