We are grateful for your participation in our 2022 Kids Walk. Below you will find the answers to the questions we commonly receive. If you do not see the answer to your question, please email us at kids@ccfsocal.org

We will be having an IN-PERSON mile walk as part of the 2022 Kids Walk on September 11th. Everyone who is comfortable and healthy enough to participate in-person is encouraged to join us to walk our mile together. 

Yes! The Kids Walk will continue to have a virtual option to participate.

It’s the next best thing to being together at the Annual Kids Walk. We call it #TogetherForGOLD — As a virtual walker, you’ll join hundreds of other participants all walking for the same cause around their neighborhoods. 

The great thing about the Kids Walk is that you can participate at anytime from anywhere! Once registered, you can choose the date, time and location that works for you – we are encouraging participants to choose a day between September 1 – 30, 2022. (September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month). Then, join other walkers online by posting photos and videos to your social media accounts. Join the conversation by tagging CCFSoCal and using the hashtags #TogetherForGOLD #KidsWalk2021 #CCFSoCal. More details below.

 

You can also participate in the IN-PERSON mile walk on September 11, 2022 at 9am in Loma Linda. 

Registration is easy! Visit our REGISTER page and click “register.” You will then be directed to the walk registration. You can walk as an individual, join an existing team or create a team of your own.

Registration closes on September 30, 2022 at 12pm PST. That gives all walkers enough time to get their mile in before we conclude the walk with our “Kids Walk: LAST LAP” LIVE on Facebook on September 30th at 6pm PST. 

Registration is only $10 per participant. This donation helps CCFSoCal meet the funding goal for programs funded in part by this fundraiser.

Whether it’s a bit each day totaling a mile, or a commitment of a mile a day – make sure to get that last lap in by September 30th!

The following apps are great options for tracking your mile using your mobile phone:
