Product & Pictorial Work Log
Name: Katie Horlock
Product: Walk for Lindsay to raise awareness for childhood cancer
Date & Time
Activity: Meeting my facilitator and talking about the start of my project and how everything is going to go. I have met her once before but it has been a very long time.
Commentary: The Rally Foundation is for childhood cancer research. My 5k walk/run will be in honor of Lindsay Simmons who was my friend that passed away from Leukemia. She was a “Rally Kid”, therefor the proceeds will go to them.
Photo Caption: This is at a celebration for Lindsay’s life as I met my facilitator. My facilitator is a personal trainer and has had experience in this field many times.
Activity: I began by researching the “steps for starting a 5k” as recommended by my facilitator. I learned that the first thing I need to do is create a time and date. We have an idea of when the 5k should be.
Commentary: I needed to figure out how to tie in my future career, a Veterinarian, into my 5k. I talked to my vet science teacher and she gave me the idea of letting people walk their dogs in the walk/run for an additional five dollars. This money would go to the Humane Society, which will benefit homeless pets.
Photo Caption: I spent time on my computer designing the T-shirt we would use for the race and figuring out what sponsors to use.
Activity: I met my facilitator after she taught a gymnastics meeting. We discussed the official date for the race, and decided on a location. She also gave me numbers to call for people that will help me with my t-shirts and signs.
Commentary: I began to feel less stressed because my facilitator is very experienced in this field and she was able to help me plan out what to do. I am contacting Hobgood Park and First Baptist Woodstock Church tomorrow to see how to set up a 5k.
Photo Caption: This is my facilitator and I at Cherokee Recreation center talking to them about who to contact regarding Hobgood park and my race.
Activity: This is me calling different groups to see where my walk will be held. My ideas are Hobgood and Woodstock First Baptist Church. I visited Cherokee Parks and Recreation to see who I needed to call to organize the walk.
Commentary: The point of the walk is not exactly to raise money (although that is good) but to raise awareness. It has not been widely known that cancer affects many children. When you donate for cancer research, only 3% of donated money goes to children.
Photo Caption: This is me on the phone with Cherokee Parks and Recreation discussing my project. I have decided that WFBC might be a better choice for my walk.
Activity: I continue to write in my journal and look up more information about what is needed for a 5k. I have dedicated a notebook just to my senior project which I organized by price, location, etc.
Commentary: A problem I have faced is how many T-shirts to order and how much to make them. I haven’t been sure whether to order many t-shirts or few. I have also had to talk to my facilitator to discuss what she thinks is best for ordering them. I designed t-shirts but I also was given a phone number to someone who can help me with them.
Photo Caption: I spent a couple hours finalizing my t-shirts and writing the costs of metals, etc. for my walk for Lindsay.
Activity: I have been texting my facilitator discussing the date to make sure what day works best for both of us. We have had to look at our calendars and see what works best.
Commentary: So far, March 24th is the day for the walk. We think it should be at 7 PM and we can have lanterns everywhere. This will go well with the theme “Light for Lindsay”. This is after the 3rd product log date so I need to contact the people in charge of the senior project to make sure that’s ok.
Photo Caption: This is a photo of me texting my facilitator while she sends me numbers that may help me plan.

5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Activity: This evening I created a poster to advertise my senior project. I made sure to include all the information anyone could wonder so there wouldn’t be unsure questions. I made sure to contain my email for anyone that needed to reach out to me and my project. I also was able to contact beta club so my event was able to be worth a “point” for attending.
Commentary: While I was making my poster, I realized that the picture I wanted to use was difficult to find. After searching and finding a decent picture, I emailed it to my facilitator to make sure it looked okay. After this, I got the posters approved and posted them across the campus. I also advertised them on all of my social media and invited many people.
Photo Caption: This is my completed poster after my facilitator approved and said that it was advertised very well.
Saturday, March 11, 2017
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Activity: This evening I worked on getting all the materials ready for my event. I bought posters, table cloths, glow sticks, etc. I ordered lanterns online and made sure they would arrive before the event. I made arrangement for tables being delivered, balloons being ready for pick-up, and all the materials to be ready before the event started at 7.
Commentary: Getting all the materials ready was overwhelming and frustrating at times. I had to make sure that my friends and family helped me at times so I did not forget anything important. My facilitator reminded me of responsibilities (like creating a Facebook group) to keep everything running smoothly.
Photo Caption: This is after I finished completing one of the posters and continued to get materials prepared.
Friday, March 24, 2017
6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Activity: Friday evening was my actual setup then the event. I arrived an hour early to set up tables, balloons, posters, etc. I made it clear where to start and when to come back for lanterns. At 8, we started releasing lanterns in honor of Lindsay. I was able to raise $250 in donations. After the walking and event was over, I cleaned up the trash and loaded all the tables back up into cars.
Commentary: I was very overwhelmed the actual day of my project due to other things that occurred the same day. Many people that were supposed to attend were not able to. But, the event went really well and I am thankful to have the support and be able to honor the lives of both Lindsay and Mr. White.
Photo Caption: This picture shows off lanterns that we all released in honor of Lindsay and Mr. White.
