About Walk With Me West Georgia 2016

Join us for a morning of fun and physical fitness as we walk to put hope within reach for people with disabilities at our 1 mile Family Fun Walk and 5K Walk/Run. The day begins at 7:00 a.m. with registration and pre-event festivities. All participants will have the opportunity to meet our Honorary Adult Ambassadors "John" and "Geri" and Children's Ambassador "George" who have benefited from Easter Seals programs. Don't miss music and refreshments beginning at 7:00 a.m. New to the event this year, is the 5k timed run, timed by Lightning Sports Racing. The 5k will start at 8:00 a.m. and participants are encouraged to stay for the 1 mile family fun walk at 9:00 a.m. and the closing ceremony to follow. There will be awards given for the 5k as well as team awards for the team with the most walkers present, best team theme, most creative name, and the 2 teams that raised the most money! Post-event sit back, relax and enjoy festivities including children's activities, music and other entertainment. Also, we encourage you to visit Columbus' own "National Treasure"...the National Infantry Museum, in it you will be awed at the sights and sounds of our infantry's history. Parking for the event is free and easy. Lace up those walking shoes and walk with us...it's easy and fun! Many thanks to the National Infantry Museum for hosting our 1 mile Family Fun walk and 5K Walk/Run.
