Saturday, Sept. 22 festivities starting at 11 am, Walk starting at 1 pm @ Minnehaha Park, Minneapolis.
Join our annual 5K walk to raise funds, increase awareness & change perceptions about mental illness.
Before the Walk there will be live music, picnics & food trucks, speakers, resource tables, a kid’s tent, tree of hope, t-shirt contest & more.
Click here then enter "Washington County Walkers" at the top of this page in the "Fundraiser Search" spot (with the magnifying glass in it) to join this team which is the Washington County Affiliate's Walk Team.
Or, if your team is new this year, designate your team's funds to "Washington County Walkers" so 50% of what you raise will be spent on efforts in Washington County. This because all of the funds designated for a county go through its Affiliate.
