In Terrace the walk starts at Parkside Secondary School with registration at 1 p.m, and walkers will stride their way over 2 and half kilometer course at 2 o’clock.
In Williams Lake the walkers will gather at 9 a.m. At Boitanio Park. Registration starts at 9 a.m. And the walk kicks off at 10 o’clock.
The goal of the walk in both locations is to raise $20,000. Last year Terrace walkers raised $12,250. So far, two teams have entered with a combined 11 participants. The biggest single donation has been $500.
In Williams Lake there will be two teams with a combined 9 walkers. The largest single donation is $325. Last years Williams Lake raised just over $8,800.
