The Out of the Darkness Community Walk follows the loop around Lake Padden Park. The route is roughly 3 miles and is flat but graveled. We start near the Rotary Shelter near the children’s play area.
The route is not technically challenging, has very little elevation change, and is wheelchair friendly throughout the majority of its length. If you or members of your team would like to attend the walk and be a part of the day’s events but do not wish to actually walk for physical or other concerns, there will be volunteers and attendees who remain at the staging area to welcome the volunteers back.
|Don’t forget to post to your Facebook page. Add the Out of the Darkness link: www.outofthedarkness.org or direct link to YOUR fundraising page|
|If you Twitter, tweet about the event|
Raise $150 by September 22nd and receive a 2013 Out of the Darkness Walk t- shirt!
Remember, in addition to fundraising online, you can turn in cash and check donations at the Registration tents on the day of the Walk.
