In consideration of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the impact on our community we have decided to move the Buddy Walk to a virtual formatThe virtual walk will still take place on Sunday, October 3rd. Team captains are encouraged to walk and celebrate with their team in a way that’s most comfortable to them.  We will miss coming together with you all in person and look forward to celebrating with you virtually.

All team captains will receive a drop off of their team shirts, team captain swag bag, team sign for teams that raised over $500 and pumpkins for all children registered on the team. This will take place on Saturday, October 2nd and we will give you a window of time in which your delivery will take place 48 hours in advance. For those not on a team, we will place your shirt in the mail.
