Pick Your Path
Do you like getting out for an event like this but have no interest in a crowd? We’ve got you covered! There are several different paths you can take from our gathering location. These are some draft ideas; all of them start from the same pavilion. Feel free to extend, shorten, or work out your path. While we will have an official kickoff for people wanting to go out in a group, we also encourage teams to start their stride anytime within our event block. This is not a timed event, but we have many prizes for participants!
Run a 5k on the beautiful North Branch Trail. Parts of this path are smooth, and parts are gravel through an old train track.
Approx. 3 miles/5k
Take a relaxing walk through the north part of LaBagh Woods. Spend some time along the river and circle back to our pavilion.
Approx. 1 mile
Follow the paved path from our pavilion to the baseball fields. Bikes will release slowly so we don’t overwhelm the path.
Approx. 2 miles
Create a Team
Please help us raise even more funds by creating your team and raising funds together. Ask friends and family who can’t come to the event with you to donate.
“It’s been so fun evolving this event. We started virtually during the pandemic. One thing that has remained the same is finding unique/fun ways to bringing in sensory activities so everyone can walk away with a better understanding of the 8 senses. We take pride in this truly being an inclusive event with lots of supports on site.”— Jen Puccini, Founder
Refund Policy: We understand life happens, and goodness knows weather happens, which can put a wrench into an event like this. Given this is a fundraising event with upfront costs that we cannot recoup, we hope you will consider donating the entry if the event is canceled. We will ensure everyone gets their t-shirts and would love to meet up for individual walks if we can’t do it together. We’ll process refunds only when requested, including if the event is canceled due to inclement weather. Refund rates will be as follows: 100% – 1 month prior, 50% – 2 weeks prior, 20% – up to the day of. Refunds will only be given on entry fees. If you want a refund, please send us a note at [email protected].
