Last year's walk was fabulous. We strolled through SeaWorld and saw many animals out with their handlers. The main part of the walk is a one mile loop through SeaWorld bringing you back to the Start/Finish line. For those who wish, you can continue walking along Mission Bay for 3 more miles - finishing back at the Start/Finish line. The entire 4 miles is wheelchair/stroller friendly. At the Start/Finish line after the walk there are many booths with free food and give-aways. It's a fun morning.
How you can get involved
We are encouraging everyone to register as a walker on the team. 100% of the registration fees go to the Brain Tumor Research fund. If you can't attend the event, then you can sign up as a "virtual walker". All registered walkers can then go out and get sponsors - thus increasing the total raised for the team and Brain Tumor Research. The challenge is for each walker to ask 10 people to sponsor them at $10 each. There are prizes to be earned for those who raise certain dollar amounts.
If you would like to support our team, but do not want to register as a walker, then you can still sponsor someone else who is a walker on the team. - Instructions below.
BRICK has pledged to raise $30,000 over the next five years and recruiting walkers and sponsors for our team is one of our funding sources. If you want to sponsor a walker and support BRICK's goal, then any member of the Fountain family would be happy to receive your donation. Cecillia, Jason, and Les Fountain each have a goal to raise $500 to earn the SeaWorld Silver Passport prizes.
