Prior to walking the route, 2023 Walk for Kids participants were led in warm up exercises by Janis Bottai of Vital Moves.

Each year, SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) hosts the Walk for Kids. This year the Walk will be held at 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 26. This signature SBCO event helps support our food, clothing, enrichment and education programs benefiting youngsters along a 100+ mile corridor from Catalina to Globe. Annually, SBCO touches the lives of approximately 4,000 students through new clothes, backpacks filled with school supplies, post-high school scholarships, contributions to Tri-Community Food Bank and financial support for a wide range of enrichment activities.

Online registration for the 2024 Walk for Kids will begin in August at community-

outreach.org. The registration fee per adult and child (ages six through 18) will cover the cost of a t-shirt, snacks and drinks.

If you choose not to register online, in-person registration will begin after Labor Day and run through until Friday, October 25, 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 the day of the event.

However, early registration is recommended to ensure that you receive a t-shirt in your desired size.

Talk to your neighbors about forming a unit Walk for Kids team! Walking with friends while supporting SBCO is a great way to spend a Saturday morning.
