Upcoming Events!

Can you believe that our WALK is this weekend? 

Parking for the majority of Walk attendees and volunteers is recommended at any of the parking lots around Reid Park. There are three parking lots accessible on Country Club just south of Camino Campestre and lots along Camino Campestre and Lakeshore Drive. If those lots are full, parking near and around Hi Corbett Field is available. We will have a Brookdale Shuttle picking up in parking lots and dropping off at the main walk site. (Please refer to attached map)

Sponsor and Handicap Parking: 
Reserved parking for Sponsors and Handicap parking is located at the first parking lot on Country Club (just North of 22nd Street) closest to the main site. Sponsors have one available parking spot in the lot and will be checked in by a volunteer manning the entrance. Handicap parking is available for those with a valid handicap plate/permit. 
Parking is limited and will be first come, first serve. If you utilize this parking lot, you will not be able to leave the lot until after all of the walkers have returned from the Walk Route. 

Volunteer Parking is available off of 22nd and Lakeshore Drive, the first parking lot to the west. 

Check-In: 
Registration and our Event opens at 8:00 am. On the map below you can see Registration is marked by the STAR icon. Check-in is where you can turn in any remaining fundraising dollars you've collected and get your coupons for your Commemorative 2018 Walk T-shirt (a $100 fundraising incentive) and your Promise Garden Flower coupon. 

Champion/Grand Champion:
If you are a Champion or Grand Champion (you've raised $500 or more), please check in with a guest at the Champions Tent, Marked "C" on the map. It's just one of the ways we are saying thank you for going above and beyond in your fundraising. 

Promise Garden Ceremony & Walk Start Time: 
Everyone is invited to join us at 9:00 am at our Main Stage for our Promise Garden Ceremony. While DJ Papa Ranger will be keeping everyone energized leading up to the ceremony, we encourage all Walk attendees to head over to the stage around 8:25 am so we can enjoy Folklorico Los Guerreros from Pueblo High School, followed by a Blessing from the Tohono O'Odham Wa:K Traditional Singers of San Xavier. At 9:00 am we will have the call for colors by Oro Valley Post 132 and then our National Anthem sung by Jeremiah Fountain from Oro Valley Post 132. Our Opening Ceremony begins with News Anchor Pricilla Casper with KVOATV4. 

The Walk will start at 9:30 am - we will have a countdown leading up to the big moment when we all walk to fight for the first survivor and the vision to #EndALZ! Get excited, Get your Purple On and we will see you at Reid Park on Saturday, November 10!
