***IMPORTANT PARKING & EVENT SITE CHANGE***
Due to construction work being done by the park, there will not be access to the roundabout used as a handicap drop off in the past. Riverside Drive will be closed after Cedar and Cottonwood Drives, making parking even more limited.
Please utilize the Farrington Field East Lot for parking. Complimentary shuttle buses will be making continuous trips to the walk site. Additionally, the event site has been moved just a few yards closer to Cedar Drive to accommodate those being dropped off. Please arrive early to allow yourself plenty of time to navigate the shuttles and new site location. Thank you in advance.
All funds raised through our events allow the National Brain Tumor Society to advance research and public policy to improve the availability of new and better treatments, and fuel the discovery of a cure for brain tumors.
