Walk For Kids – Save The Date!

In 2019, the last year walkers were able to gather for the annual Walkathon, participants enjoyed perfect weather on their trip around the Ridgeview Blvd. loop.

For 23 years SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) has hosted a Walkathon. This year the event has been renamed to Walk for Kids, since participants do not collect monetary pledges for the distance they walk. The Walk will be held at 8:00 am on Saturday, October 29th. Despite the name change, this a signature SBCO event that helps support our food, clothing and education programs benefiting youngsters along a 100-mile corridor from Catalina to the San Carlos Indian Reservation and Miami school system. Annually, SBCO touches the lives of approximately 4,000 students through new clothes, backpacks filled with school supplies, college scholarships, contributions to Tri-Community Food Bank, and financial support for a wide range of educational enrichment activities.

This year, in honor of SBCO’s 25th anniversary, walkers will receive a special commemorative t-shirt and continental breakfast. Participants also will be able to enjoy musical performances and visit booths featuring information about all of SBCO’s programs and some of its leading business supporters.

Online registration for the 2022 Walk for Kids will begin on Monday, August 1 at community-outreach.org. The registration fee of $20 per adult and $10 per child (ages 6 through 18) covers the cost of the t-shirt and continental breakfast.

If you choose not to register online, in person registration begins on Thursday, September 1, every Monday through Friday between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm at the SBCO office at Suite L in the Minit-Market plaza.
