It’s hard to believe that the 2015 Walk to Cure Arthritis is almost here.  We have just 19 short days left to reach our goals of 20+ team members and raising $5000.  Even if we don’t reach our fundraising goal (it was a lofty one for us) we would really love to reach our team member goal.  If you are reading this, have you signed up to walk with us?  It’s really quite easy……

The 2015 Walk to Cure Arthritis is Saturday, May 2nd at John Ball Park.   Registration/Check-In begins at 8:30a and the program and walk begin at 9:40a.  There are two courses you can walk, a one mile course and a three mile course.  There is no fee to walk with us, however all walkers ages 3 years and over do need to be registered.  If a walker raises or donates $25 or more they will receive a wristband for complementary admission to the zoo for the remainder of the day.  Talk about a great family outing!

There will be all sorts of fun things to do before the walk during the Registration/Check In time.   There will be a terrific juggling act to watch from Just Josh Juggling.  I’ve heard a rumor that Griff from the Grand Rapids Griffins will be there.  And there will be exhibits from the event sponsors as well.

After the walk we will be hosting a picnic (weather permitting) for everyone that walks with us.  We will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs and have chips and cookies for everyone before they head into the zoo or off to enjoy the remainder of their day just as our way to say Thank You to everyone that comes out to support Mackenzie.
