Registration Procedures:

All participants please check in at the registration area, even if you have pre-registered on the website.  If you have donations with you, please turn them in at the registration area as soon as you arrive.  Please remember to convert all cash into checks.  Everyone who raises $100 or more will receive a 2015 Arizona VisionWalk t-shirt.

Team Photos:

Don't forget to visit our team photo area to take a photo of you and your teammates to commemorate the day.

Team Spirit:

Remember to wear bright and colorful t-shirts so your group can find you at Steele Indian School Park.  There will be over 600 walkers at the site so plan ahead by designating a meeting spot.  You may also want to have a big Team Sign decorated with your team's name on it so you can walk loud and proud letting everyone know who you are!

Walk Route:

VisionWalk is a 5K (3.1 mile) walk.  This equals three times around the park's walking path which will clearly be marked with signs and volunteers.  Each time you will pass the main walk site.  For those of you who wish, please feel free to stop and rest or only walk a portion of the route.

After Walk Celebration:

In addition to enjoying yummy food after the Walk, we will be handing out our famous Flying Pig Awards.  Be sure to stick around to see if you are one of our winners.

Rain or Shine:

The Walk will happen rain or shine.  Right now the forecast is for partly cloudy and 73 degrees so it's looking good.  But just in case, everyone send your anti-rain vibes these next few days for safety.

 

Don't forget the route is wheelchair and stroller accessible and pet friendly, so bring the whole family.
