“Last year’s RUNABOUT was a huge success. We had 60 runners and over 180 attendees, making it the largest Walkabout event ever! We raised over $11,000 and had a lot of fun doing it. We’re looking forward to bringing even more of the Walkabout community together this year.” said WEF Runabout Coordinator, Angel Eisermann.
The Walkabout Education Foundation has built great momentum during its first year. The growing community of Walkabout supporters is engaged and ready to continue its mission of making a Walkabout education available to those high school students who need it most.
Following the race, the Walkabout Education Foundation has organized several events to celebrate the afternoon with alumni, family and supporters. The events will include: an awards ceremony, live music, games and activities for kids, an auction, live music, raffles, food vendors and a beer garden.
