The Walk/Run for Walker


Thanks to all of our runners, walkers, and volunteers, the 2013 Walk/Run for Walker was a huge success!

The inaugural Fun Run drew 92 entrants, while more than 250 walkers kicked up their heels for a 1-mile walk. 65 volunteers were on hand to make the event run as smoothly as the J.P. Licks ice cream that so many attendees enjoyed.


More than 400 people helped us raise $50,000 for Walker programs!


Congratulations to the top Fun Run finishers in their age categories:

Morgan Kelly, Henry Dirks, Julie Coffman, Jackson Segal, Lauren Passier, Gavin Smith, Megan Kerr and Olutoyin Fayemi
