These Boots Were Made for Walking.

These Boots Were Made for Walking.

Nan Nasser

Do you remember the song These Boots Were Made for Walking? Well, polish off your boots and sneakers and get ready for the 19th annual SaddleBrooke Community Outreach Walkathon to be held Saturday, October 24, beginning at 7:30 a.m. with warmups in the HOA One parking lot, a walk around Ridgeview and ending with a warm breakfast back at the SB clubhouse.

The breakfast menu is still being finalized and will determine the cost of the entry. That cost includes a T-shirt and the breakfast. The T-shirt is your ticket to the breakfast. For those opting for a shorter route than the Ridgeview circle there will be a different walk up to the commercial center and back. For those who would like to attend but not walk, that is also an option!

Pets on leashes are encouraged! Water stations and golf cart emergency transportation will be available, Vital Moves will conduct warmup exercises, Grand Marshals will be introduced and raffle prizes will be available.

Save the date! All proceeds from the annual event are dedicated to programs of SBCO, which include Kids’ Closet, Teen Closet, educational opportunities and support of the Tri Community Food Bank.

One of the favorite items a child receives from Kids’ Closet is a pair of new sneakers. You can run faster and jump higher in new shoes. Help us help our kids receive those new shoes by walking in your own shoes for the children on October 24.
