On Tuesday, April 28, representatives from many San Antonio nonprofits gathered outside City Hall for a proclamation from Mayor Ivey Taylor. About 300 people were present. Four of us were there representing the American Volkssport Association.

The day was lovely and we had good feedback about people wanting to attend our walks. The whole event today was to get the word out to give to your favorite charity on May 5, the day of "The Big Give."
The American Volkssport Association has an anonymous donor this year who will match up to the first $30,000 donated. Wow, that's very generous. [Update: On May 5, $39,000 was donated to the AVA during the 24-hour Big Give. Our donor matched $30,000, making a grand total donated to Volksmarching of $69,000. That is so great!]
