Minimum Registration Fee: Each walker over the age of 12  must raise at least $25 in order to participate. Walkers ages 12-2 must raise $10. This registration fee will be applied to the walker’s pledge total. This fee covers each walker’s parking and admission into the zoo.

While we have this minimum registration fee, we are asking each walker to help us meet our goal by raising an average of $100 (those raising $100 or more will receive a 2017 Kidney Walk T-Shirt. Those raising $250 or more will receive an additional prize six weeks after the Walk). While we strive to get the majority of materials donated, each walker’s support will help offset the costs associated with the Walk. bur more importantly it will support our mission, programs, and services.

Festivities Include:

  • Zoo Admission
  • Free parking
  • Scenic route through the Zoo. In fact, we encourage our walkers to leisurely stroll through the Zoo and enjoy all the animal exhibits
  • Entertainment
  • Kids Area with face painting, temporary tattoos and other fun activities
  • Free food
  • Champions tent for kidney patients, living donors, or transplant recipients
  • Much more
