The Walk for Kids will begin with a warm-up session at 8:40 a.m. followed by the walk at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28. This signature SBCO event helps support our food, clothing, enrichment, and education programs benefiting youngsters along a 100+-mile corridor from Catalina to the San Carlos Indian Reservation and the Miami school system. SBCO now also offers scholarships to students in Globe. Annually, SBCO touches the lives of approximately 4,000 students through new clothes, backpacks filled with school supplies, college scholarships, contributions to Tri-Community Food Bank, and financial support for a wide range of educational enrichment activities.
Online registration for the 2023 Walk for Kids is available at community-outreach.org. The registration fee of $30 per adult and $15 per child (ages 6 through 18) covers the cost of a T-shirt, snacks, and drinks.
In-person registration began on Sept. 5 and runs through Oct. 27, every Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the SBCO office at Suite L in the Minit-Market plaza. Registrations will also be accepted on the day of the event. However, to ensure that you receive a T-shirt in your size, you must register (online or in person) by Sept. 28.
T-shirts will be available for pick up at the SBCO office between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 23 through Friday, Oct. 27.
