    Be there if you can! I was so glad that I attended Working 2 Walk in Chicago. It was terrific!

      I would love to go. I loved Chicago. The dates are okay for us-just need to watch finances, etc. to see if we can make it. Looking forward to more details.

                    ChinaDoll, thanks for asking the question. In the past, we have been fortunate enough to offer registration fee grants to individuals who qualify for them. They are funded by generous contributions from individuals and companies who specifically donate money to cover this cost. When and if grant money becomes available, we will post the information on our website with instructions on how to apply for one.

                    We do try to make this event as affordable as possible. The registration fee is considerably lower than what other conferences charge. With the help of volunteers and sponsors, we hope to keep it affordable again this year.

                        Sounds tempting. Road-trip. How far is the Grand Canyon from there?

                          Thanks, Leo! I appreciate your kind words.

                          We missed you last year, but I noticed on the W2W10 Facebook page, you're planning on joining us in November. That's great news! I look forward to seeing you in Phoenix!

                            We are about four hours away from the Grand Canyon. Hopefully by then my shoulder will be all healed. If not, I guess I'll just have to use a power chair or something. LOL, as if I shouldn't be using one now.
