Join us for a scenic walk at County Farm Park! You will have a choice of 4 walk routes: 0.5 mile (paved), 0.6 mile, 1.1 miles, and 1.4 miles (Fitness Challenge Course).
After checking in, enjoy all the walk festivities:
• Breakfast and refreshments
• Kids activities
• Fitness Challenge: Test your strength and endurance on the Fitness Trail. Complete the course to win a Kidney Walk prize
• Mutt Hut: Where dogs and theirs owners can treat themselves to some special doggy treats
• Passport Challenge: Get your passport stamped by all the walk table vendors and get your name put into a drawing for a prize
• Live entertainment
• And much more!
There will be a special place designated for our Champions, those on dialysis and kidney donors or recipients, offering VIP treatment including massages, gifts and kidney-friendly food.
Each walker over the age of 2 is being asked to raise at least $10 in order to participate. This will be applied to the walker’s pledge total. However, our overall goal for the walk is $32,000 and each walker can help us meet this goal by raising an average of $146. While we strive to get the majority of materials donated, each walker’s support will help offset the costs associated with the Walk, but more importantly it will support our mission, programs, and services.
