So you saw our post earlier this week and you like the idea of supporting Parkinson’s families in San Diego County. You’re ready to start your team and contact your friends and family about supporting you. Then it hits you – you’ll need to walk the whole 5K.
Let us reassure you. This is an event where friends and family sponsor participants just for being a participant. This is not a walk-a-thon where friends pay for every lap or kilometer completed. We have many team captains who simply start the event with their team and then wait and cheer them on at the finish line. There are also many places on the route where walkers can take a short-cut to the end. Volunteers along the route will cheer you on no matter how far you walk, and will be glad to direct you to the shortest route back.
Would you really like to walk, are able to walk, but just think it sounds like too far? We can help get you started with that – just check out our next blog entry!
