Minimum Registration Fee
In order to ensure that the most funds possible will go directly to the NKFM’s programs and services, we have set a registration fee of $25 for all walkers over the age of 12. Walkers ages 2-12 will have a $10 fee. This fee will be applied to the walker’s pledge total and includes parking and zoo admission.
Special drawing for those reaching the $250 milestone

Between now and Wednesday, May 13th when an individual walker raises $250 they will be entered one time into a drawing for one of three Meijer gift cards valued at $500, $250 and $100. The drawing for the three winners will be held live and on-stage during the Walk’s program.
** One entry per walker and based on individual fundraising efforts
