Participants choose from several fun events--walking, cycling, horseback riding or a color fun run. The event begins at the Walla Walla Community College Dietrich Dome and ends with a free celebratory lunch for all participants (served 11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.).
More than 620 people came together for the 2014 event, raising over $32,000 for the Cancer Special Needs Fund.
