Pace/Level of Walk: The walk will be at a deliberately slow pace. There will be several sitting breaks for reflection. The terrain at times may be steep. We do walk in the rain and in moderate windy/ snowy conditions (but seldom if this is a tree climb event). 

Payment Methods: This special walk is free but donations will be gladly accepted.

Postponed/Rescheduled Walks: The walk may be re-scheduled due to poor weather (however, we do walk in the rain) or low attendance. Participants will be notified of a postponed walk for weather the day before and made aware of the rescheduled date and time. Participants will be made aware of rescheduled walks due to low attendance two days prior to the walk.
