There is no childcare provided during the Walk and Run. Families are encouraged to walk together on the Life Walk, and children are welcome to have fun on the Bounce House and playground, under parental supervision.
How can children be involved in the event?
We love children! We have three races specifically for our smaller friends: Toddler Trot (ages 0-3), Preschool Gallop (ages 4-5), and Kids Dash (ages 6-7). They can also walk in the Life Walk, and if able, they are welcome to run the 5k along with the grown-ups. Children may be able to help volunteer with adult supervision. All kids need to be registered to participate. Register HERE.
What happens if it rains?
It is a rain or shine event. We will only cancel in the case of lightning.
What are the volunteer opportunities on the day of the Walk and 5k Run?
Thanks for your interest – there are many ways you can help out as a volunteer at the Walk and Run for Life! These include but are not limited to: marking the course, registration, directing runners and walkers, handing out water at the finish line, etc. As with Walkers and Runners, we encourage our volunteers to set a fundraising goal and raise money for our life-saving work!
For more information on volunteering at the event, please email Angela or call the office at (410) 431-5000.
Are strollers allowed on the 5k course?
No. Unfortunately, due to safety concerns, strollers (including jogging strollers) are not allowed on the 5k trail. We welcome strollers on our Life Walk.
Can I bring my dog with me?
We welcome well behaved dogs on leashes. Please do not forget to clean up after your dog.
