The Walk

Take a leisurely walk around a beautiful, tree-filled forest preserve. We will have to keep our 6-foot distance while walking, to be compliant with our State of Illinois guidelines. Also please wear a mask, when not being able to maintain the 6-foot distance from others. The GCFA will be awarding first, second, and third place prizes for the most sponsors/pledges collected.

Please ask your co-workers, friends, relatives, and neighbors to sponsor/pledge you on the walk. If you can’t be there in person, please email the GCFA for details on how to sponsor one of our designated volunteers that will be walking.

The Picnic

The picnic is a separate event from the walk-a-thon. There will be delicious cold refreshments, hot dogs, grilled and buttered corn-on-the-cob, fun games, and prizes! Please bring your favorite side dish to share. There are picnic tables on site, but please bring chairs so we can maintain our social distancing.

Ferrets and Other Animals are Welcome at the Picnic

Ferrets and other animals are welcome, but please be aware of the temperature, weather and insects. Please make sure your ferret has an enclosure, has access to water and a litter box. If you bring your dog, please have a collar and leash.

Hope to see you there or please sponsor a designated walker. Also remember your sponsorship is tax deductible
