Since the year before our first home opened in 1987, we’ve held a Walk-a-Thon fundraising event on the third Saturday of September. Over the years we have expanded it to include bicycling and running. Of course, wheelchairs have always been welcome. Participants collect pledges from their friends and family and we all get together for a great day—rain or shine.
This year marked our 30th annual Walk-a-Thon. To celebrate, we hosted the event at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park on Saturday, September 10. The forecast indicated rain but the weather held off long enough for us to enjoy our walk. We are deeply grateful to have raised over $67,000 at this year’s event. Thank you, donors and sponsors, for your generous support.
The 2017 Walk-a-Thon has been scheduled for Saturday, September 16 at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. More details to come.
