The Tori de Tori was started in 2002 year because we had some free time on our hands that Spring. The concept is to participate in as many Great Strides or other CF fundraisers without vaporizing our checking account and overburdening donors. The Tour gives some structure to our social calendar as well, such as it is. It also gives you, the viewing audience, a peek at the great fundraisers the Washington CFF chapter produces every year. This year we squeezed in eight events between February 10th and June 10th, raising over $7,000 along the way. The Fall portion of the Tour, with at least four more events - Party with a Purpose, the Snoqualmie Valley Great Strides, a new Pub Crawl in Kirkland and Bowl for Breath, will kick off in September.
Another goal of the Tour is to encourage you to participate in one or more of these functions. We don't actively seek donations outside of the Seattle Great Strides walk, but if you're looking to have a little fun, why not have your money go to a great cause at the same time?
There are plenty of CF fundraisers throughout the year to keep everybody busy. We try to attend as many as we reasonably can, but there are always some we can't get to. Here's a list of 2007 event dates - more events will be added as information becomes available. Links for most recent comparable events are provided until 2007 info is available. As always, more information is available at the CFF office, 206-282-4770 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
