Walk It Off: Charity Walks

The Big Day

  • Get plenty of sleep the night before your big event.
  • Bring along an ID, sunscreen, sunglasses, some cash, and a credit card.
  • Don't wear new sneakers. Stick with what's tried and true or risk a blister.
  • Stay hydrated. All organized walks have plenty of facilities for bathroom breaks.
  • Don't eat or drink anything new. This isn't the day to try sport gel for the first time.
