Reflecting on 2022

This past year was an incredible year to see come together. You did an amazing job bringing your teams together for a turnout of over 4700 people, fundraising a little over $822,000 and turning the Detroit Zoo purple! Detroit Walk was #16 in the nation for 2022 thanks to all of YOU! Check out this video of photos put together from professional photos from Photography by Mari. THANK YOU for an amazing season!
