Changes in store for 2019 Walk Run

Annual May event to be staged at Hart Park; communitywide 5K added

The EFW Walk/Run, set for May 4, 2019, is moving to Hart Park.

In addition, a timed 5K open to the community will be added to the familiar walk and fun-run format. Participants can expect the same quality family-oriented fund raiser with something extra for those seeking more competitive event. Organizers believe this change will result in higher participation, and more dollars to support grants for schools.

More details, including route info, to be announced soon.
