14th Annual Homeward Bound 5K Walk
Sunday, April 10, 2016  -  pm- pm

(Walk starts at 1pm)
The Waldron, Hill, and Buskirk Park

(formerly 3rd St. Park)


We will be at the Park from 12pm to 3pm with live music, a kids bounce-house, free chili offered from Lions Club, water (doggy water station also available), and raffle tickets sale!  A special prize will be given to the team or individual raising the most money and the team with the most walkers (could be the same team)!


Anyone is welcome to join us for the walk, starting at 1pm;  a shorter route is also available this year.  Make sure you have registered, and get your t-shirt in advance -if you requested one and made a donation of $20 or above. 




You can support the Walk and your community agencies by

  • donating to either of them or the Walk as a whole (click the DONATE button, and then click GENERAL);
  • donating to an existing team (click the DONATE button, and then click TEAM; you will see a list of teams to choose from);
  • fundraising through the creation of a team (click the REGISTER NOW button, and then choose Start and Lead a Team); this team can designate the raised funds to a specific agency or the funds can be distributed equally among all participating agencies;
  • registering to walk as a single walker and asking for friends and family to sponsor you or join you in donations (you would click the REGISTER NOW button to register yourself, and your friends and family would go to the DONATE button and then click WALKER to sponsor you walking)!
