The Great VISIT FLORIDA Beach Walk, Nov. 6, 2010

Last month I told you about The Great VISIT FLORIDA Beach Walk scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 6, 2010. Probably the world’s largest beach rally, all 825 miles of the Sunshine State’s beaches will be walked and photographed the same morning to show the world how fantastic the beaches are. I’m happy to share more information about the event.

How to Participate
Become an official volunteer by registering with Volunteer Florida.

The County Host will contact you and assign your one mile stretch of beach in which you’ll be responsible for walking and photographing. You are also responsible for uploading at least one photo by 11 a.m. on Nov. 6 to VISIT FLORIDA’s Share a Little Sunshine website.

All photos will be displayed at and voters will vote for their fave Florida beach mile.

Vote and Win a New Car!
But wait, there’s more…voters will be entered to win $5,000 and a Mazda Miata so they can zip around Florida to see the clean beaches firsthand. Votes need to be cast by Dec. 6, 2010.

Participate Because I Said So, it’s Good for the Economy, and Makes You Feel Good
Why should you participate in the Great VISIT FLORIDA Beach Walk? Real time photos will show the global community Florida’s beaches are fine and fabulous which should encourage people to vacation in the Sunshine State. Vacationers mean jobs for Floridians. In fact, 85 visitors equals one Florida tourism job. By participating in the walk, you’ll be an important link in the state’s economic well being and that should make you feel pretty good.

I’ve registered and you better do the same but hurry because the registration deadline for The Great VISIT FLORIDA Beach Walk is Thursday, Nov. 4, 2010, at 5 p.m. Be sure to read the legal mumbo-jumbo on the registration page, too.

See ya on the beach!
