All fitness levels are welcome. Walk, run or skip and turn around at any point along the trail.

How much is the registration fee?

Registration is free.

Do I get a T-Shirt when I register?

We are not providing t-shirts with the free registration. However, you can make a $20 donation to receive an event t-shirt. Simply check "yes" to that question when you register and you will be taken to the event donation page at the completion of your registration.

Is there a minimum fundraising requirement?

No, but this is a fundraiser and any amount raised toward our goal of $12,000 will help provide gifts and gift cards to children and families during the holidays. We encourage you to raise as much as you are comfortable doing (and maybe stretch a little, too). We encourage walkers to share their online fundraising page via Facebook and Twitter. It's super easy and  we think you'll be surprised how many people will support a great cause!
