Due to the Covid-19 directives, we are sorry to say, this years walk is being cancelled. We will plan on next year and update as the time nears. This will give our donors and members a chance to recover from this unpresidented time.We are thinking of holding some kind of event later this summer or early fall if this virus is under control. We miss you all and hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy!
