This is an annual event. Participants get pledges from the community for
the number of miles they walk, bike, or roller blade. The money raised
supports their programs directly. The amateur community has been involved
in the walk for many years, providing interface with the first aid personnel,
walk director, and logistics. Our normal operations provide dispatch service
to pick up and deliver people who are unable to complete the walk. We are
responsible to coordinate emergencies (injuries, lost personnel, etc.)
if necessary. Report information graciously provided by Dan O’Barr WL7BD.
