WalkAmerica coming April 26

Staff reports

The Carson Valley WalkAmerica walk-a-thon will be held at Lampe Park beginning at 8:30 a.m. April 26.

The event has been raising funds for March of Dimes programs for 27 years.

On walk day, more than 2,500 walkers in northern Nevada will walk approximately 8 miles in Carson Valley, Carson City and Reno/Sparks.

Rest stops are provided along the route and after each walk there will be food, entertainment and awards.

The money raised will be used for the March of Dimes campaign for healthier babies.

Individual walkers as well as teams are encouraged to take part in the walk-a-thon. Participants ask friends and family to pledge money for each mile walked.
