Since 1986, we’ve held a Walk-A-Thon every September to raise support for the ongoing quality care provided at David's House—a $3.35 million budget, of which we need to raise $1.4 million annually.

We invite you to join us on Saturday, September 16 for our 31st Annual Walk-A-Thon at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park!

Why Do We Walk?

  • To support individuals with special needs
  • To honor those that have lived courageously, but moved on to their heavenly home
  • To enable David’s House to continue providing quality, total-person care for individuals with special needs

Register and Fundraise

We encourage all Walk-A-Thon participants to raise at least $300 for the event. But this year, it’s never been easier to raise your pledges!

With the power of Qgiv, both your event registration and fundraising can now be done online.

Whether you're attending or not attending (but still interested in raising support), registration is mandatory.

Sign up today! Registration will close Saturday, September 9.
