Once again, we are doing a "rolling" WALK Start. This means you may begin the 5K walk any time between 9am - 11am. The Resource Fair is available until 12:30pm!
This year, we will be walking for half of the course on the golf course. This will include a walking path on short and trimmed grass that is stroller-pushing friendly. In addition, there is a small handicap accessible path along this route.
If your Walk Team has any donations on WALK Day please go to our Registration Area and turn them in.
You do not have to register everyone on your team, only if they are actively fundraising. You do not need to register your children.
If you have already turned in your donations and an individual on your team qualifies for a Walk Commemorative T-Shirt (raises $150.00 as an individual) they can stop at the Registration Area and get a Ticket for our 12th Annual Commemorative Walk T-Shirt.
If you qualify for the Grand Club ($1,000.00 individually raised) you can go directly to our Grand Club VIP Area sponsored by We Rock The Spectrum Kids Gyms and pick up your Walk Shirt. (One per Grand Club Member only.) If you have donations that you are bringing in that qualify you for the Grand Club you will get a wrist band from Registration so you can enjoy the perks of being one of our incredible Grand Club Members!
