Moving For Life 2017 Hike-A-Thon: Rally-Walks & Volunteer Opportunities

September 17, 2017 @ 9:30AM — 3:30PM

Two mini-walks to support our 2017 Hike-A-Thon Hikers.

Bring cheer, smartphone cameras & a helping hand!

There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


What is the difference between a Hiker and Rally-Walker?

Hikers will be getting sponsorship for their hike (Learn about Hiking with Sponsorship here), while Rally-Walkers are not required to do so. Hikers will depend on Rally-Walkers for company, hydration, snapshots and general morale-boosting. Therefore, we ask all Rally-Walkers to help out by:

  1. Carrying 3-4 bottles of water each to distribute to hikers as needed. (We will supply you with the bottles at sign-in.)
  2. Taking lots of fun photos and/or videos to share on social media. (Please bring your smartphone cameras!)
  3. Cheering on and walking alongside hikers!

When and where do the Rally-Walks start?

  1. Morning & Whole Rally-Walk – Walkers must sign-in at 9:30 AM @ Cafe Amrita.
  2. Afternoon Rally-Walk – Walkers must sign-in at 12:00 PM @ Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art and Storytelling.
