There is no registration fee for this fun-filled event. However, to meet this year’s goal, we do ask that each walker obtain as many sponsors as possible. A minimum of $25 per walker is required to receive a free t-shirt. Please ask your family and friends to contribute to this wonderful cause; we’ll take care of asking businesses for their sponsorships.
