Join in the fun by participating in our event and bring your family and friends. The more people – the more fun! Enjoy a 1.5 mile walk along the Du Page river; stroll past Centennial Park with inline skateboarding facility, Jaycee Playground which is ADA-accessible, past Centennial Beach, on to the Dandelion Fountain, through a covered bridge, past the Paddleboat Quarry, view the Millennium Carillon Bell Tower, all the while enjoying the natural beauty for which the Riverwalk is so famously known.
Refreshments will be available, and there will be a raffle for some great items donated by local merchants and friends (you do not have to be present to win). Informative sponsor exhibits and representatives will be on hand to answer your questions. Representatives from the APDA Information and Referral Center and the Young Onset Group will be available to answer questions and provide PD information.
Registration fee is $25 per person, and you will receive a t-shirt, while supplies last. You must be present on the day of the event to obtain a t-shirt. Your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
