What do I need to do? Pre-register!

We're looking forward to seeing you this weekend! Pre-Registered participants no longer need to check-in at the Walk, so we encourage you to register, invite friends, fundraise, and donate in advance to make your day-of event experience as safe and streamlined as possible!

Learn more about our return to in-person events HERE.

Note for Saturday:

Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the event - CASH ONLY.

The Lions Club will have a cash concession stand available throughout the event.

 

We invite you to bring a new pair of socks that reminds you of your loved one to add to our memory/honor area.

Please stop to fill out an honor tag and hang it with your socks on our display.

Socks will be shared to provide warmth to those in our community in need following our event.

What do I need to know?

Do have to pre-register in order to attend?

Please register online in advance.  While registration will be available onsite, we ask you to help us reduce congestion to keep participants safe.  You can register online at afsp.org/gsv prior to the event.  Participants may also self-register by scanning our QR code banner upon arrival at the event.  This will allow more space at our check-in area to safely serve those without online registration capability.

What should I bring with me? 

Walkers are strongly encouraged to wear masks out of respect for vulnerable participants.  Masks will be available on site by request for anyone who forgets to bring one with them to the event.  

Carry your cellphone to use for registration and donations, and to scan the QR codes on the interactive signs along the walking path.

Wear comfortable walking shoes.  

Bring a filled water bottle for the walk.  

Can I turn in money at the walk?

Yes, you can turn additional donations in at the check-in/registration tent.

Where should I park?

Walkers may utilize any parking area throughout the park.

Can I bring my dog?

Pets are welcome and must be kept on a leash. Please come prepared to clean up after your pet.

Can I buy swag?

Merchandise will be available for purchase at the event.  Cash and credit cards will be accepted for merchandise (no checks, please).  See below for this year's items and prices.

What happens if it rains?

We walk rain or shine.  Please come prepared and appropriately dressed for the weather.

Are there bathrooms?

Park restroom facilities will be available throughout the event.  

Don't forget to visit our event store!

Merchandise will be available for purchase at the event.  Cash and credit cards will be accepted for merchandise (no checks, please).  Merchandise will be available on a first come, first served basis.  Additional items are available online at afsp.org/store.
