Description

Join us on January 21st as we pay tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.! This year our theme is ‘Walking for Peace and Justice’. Our 5K walk will start at Stratton Center and end at the RCC Digital Library with a stop at the Martin Luther King Jr. statue on Main Street.

After the walk join us for a short program (honoring local honorees), booths, entertainment, performances and a contest for the organization with the most number of walkers.

Proceeds from the Walk-A-Thon will benefit the Riverside African-American Historical Society to support:

The Civil Rights Institute, Clarke and Grier College Scholarships and for the maintenance and upkeep of the Martin Luther King Jr. statue.

Cost: Varies
