  • Fundraising is highly encouraged. Our Fundraising Guide (above) helps make it easy!

  • ​The walk route is a less than one mile, and is wheelchair accessible, but you can walk as much or as little as you choose.

  • Bring your own chair, if you're able & would like to for the comfort and ease of moving your seating where you would like to enjoy lunch, watch the band, etc. There is ample greenspace to spread out. We will have some additional seating available!
