We will host both an in person (Oct. 15) and virtual Walk (anytime/anywhere by Nov. 30) to support all participants as able. For in person, there is free adjacent parking and a free Family Fun Fest, including outdoor family activities with Bounce House, indoor picnic food, info table, and music before the Walk. So, come early for lunch and activities, then walk the new 5K or 1M Walk (now including Pilsen) symbolizing the trek those in underresourced countries face every day for adequate water and staples.
