2017 Walkathon

Last year our fall Walkathon was a big success and we are excited to host it again this year! The 2017 Walkathon will once again take place in Tower Grove Park at the Sons of Rest Shelter rain or shine on Saturday, November 4. Head over to our official 2017 Walkathon website to register and learn more.

Check-in and event day registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. (please arrive early), and the official walk will begin at 9:00 a.m. Raffle prizes will be drawn and announced at 11:00 a.m. once all participants have returned to the shelter.

Participation in this event is open to all. We encourage SCCS students to invite extended family members and friends to join them. Registration is free for every student and their immediate family members, discounted for SCCS alumni families, and costs $25 per person for everyone else (see the registration page for full details).

The Walkathon route is a 5K path through Tower Grove Park, beginning at the Sons of Rest Shelter. Participants are welcome to walk, run, or bike (a popular option for younger kids). A time clock will be set up at the finish line, but runners are responsible for timing their own 5K if they wish. Children who are independent on bikes will start first, followed by runners, then walkers and dependent bikers last.
