Who are you walking for?

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Whether your purpose is for research into causes, treatments and cures, support and education for those who live with the disease, or for hope for tomorrow, we all Walk With a Purpose!
Mayor Lee and Mayor Stewart A-Teams are challenging the 2 cities to see who has the most dollars raised and who has the most participants engaged in the Walk for Memories!

Leading up to the Walk we ask participants to consider bringing a photo or message in memory of a loved one. This brings the emotional connection to the event, about why we are all there. Forget Me Not!
