EVENT FAQ

You have questions?  We have answers!  Click here to view the FAQ.

 

WALK ROUTE

We have a route for everyone!  One loop around the Memorial Mall is ½ a mile of paved path that is mostly level except for one slight incline area.  Two times around is 1 mile.  A 3-mile route is also available; however, it is not recommended for wheelchairs or strollers due to gradual hills along the way.   You can also skip the walk and enjoy Rock Steady Boxing or LSVT BIG Therapy in the Movement Pavilion.

 

PARKING

Parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis in the grassy area south east of the loop leading to the World War I Museum and Memorial.  There will be signage and Volunteers to direct you to a parking spot.  Please share this information with all the members of your team.  See the map to the left.
