    A note from Katy Barrett about last year's events:

    I participated in Tour de Telling last year, and it was an amazingly fun experience!  I was apprehensive about the possible workload, and am always hesitant to pressure friends/family for donations.  But, I soon realized I could contribute in a way that felt comfortable to me.  I helped my team organize several events, including a game night, an epic rock-paper-scissors tournament (people trained for weeks!), and a happy hour.  We did donation-truth-or-dare, and ended up making Mike Baireuther run down U street in a Batman costume.  And, we even had a good old fashioned bake sale!  Over the course of the six weeks, I got to know so many people, and became more entrenched in the Speakeasy community.  I expect this year to be even more fun, and am already planning our events.  I would encourage anyone who is considering joining a team to do so.  You won't regret i!
