You are invited to register for the event and/or donate to the fundraiser, and to help spread the word about this annual fundraiser. 100% of all donations go directly to the AA&MDSIF.

This year's Walk is dedicated to Linda Kemper, Coordinator for the Houston Community of Hope and 2014 Volunteer Coordinator.


We'll be walking through an on-campus park-like environment.

Walk registration begins at 8:30am. The Walk begins at 9:45am. Walkers can choose either the 1-mile or 2-mile route.

5K registration begins at 8:00am. The 5K Run begins at 9:30am.

The registration fee is $25 per person for the Walk and $30 for the 5K Run, with discounts for students and kids.

Virtual Walkers (supporters who won't be at the event) are the same price.

Each Walker and Virtual Walker is encouraged to set a personal fundraising goal and invite friends and family members to sponsor you online.

There is still time to register for this event; or become a "virtual" walker; or support a walker or team (even a dollar is good).

If you know a runner, tell them about it. There is even a run for little kids (Brave Little Soles)

Stick around for the Frontier Fiesta to relive your college years.
