|With only a few more days until Walk Day, I thought it was time to provide you with important information regarding donations and event information.
We will be accepting donations in the office until 4:00 p.m., Wednesday, October 16th. After that, please plan to turn in your donations on Walk Day in the envelopes provided at the Check-in tent. Speaking of Walk Day, here is everything you need to know about Walk Day:
WALK DAY SCHEDULE
9:00 a.m. Check-In, Sponsor/Team Village, Kids Activities, T-shirt Contest Voting and Stage Activities Begin
10:00 a.m. START – 1 Mile, 2 Miles or 3 Miles
11:00 a.m. Lunch and Activities Continue
11:30 a.m. T-Shirt Contest Winners Announced at Stage
The Walk will take place rain or shine.
The Walk Route is located on The Nature Park trail. We encourage everyone to walk 3 loops (3 miles) of the trail. However, it is easy to just hop off the trail after 1 mile or 2 miles if you need to.
Check-In will be located at one of the first tents when you enter the park. Please make sure to stop by the check-in tent and turn in your fundraising dollars or if you haven’t registered, you can register here. Participants who fundraise $100 will receive a One Walk T-Shirt. There is a tent for One Walk T-Shirt Pickup next to the check-in tent.
All participants who fundraised $1,000 or more will gain access to the V1P tent to pick up some goodies on One Walk day.
