The Norfolk walk is underway, It will be held at the Norfolk Zoo on Oct 3rd.
Committee Members – Laura Gorney, Joanne Kral, Karen McKinley, Klista Najewicz, Jim Perry
always looking for more committe help!
We are confirmed to hold the Walk under their events tent in the center of the Zoo (near the African Village Garden). In addition, all Walk participants will receive free entrance to the Zoo for the remainder of the day. Due to the Zoo’s policy (& liability insurance), we will only have access to the main entrance, main walk to events tent, the actual events tent/grounds surrounding & bathrooms until the Zoo opens at 10:00 am. We also will not be permitted access to the exhibits until after our Walk, as the Zoo prohibits any walks or runs through the zoo (before or after the Zoo opens). So, the plan is to open registration at 8:00 am & begin the opening ceremony/walk at 9:00 am. Then, the walkers will proceed out of the main Zoo entrance, into Lafayette Park, walk around the park twice, come back to the Zoo & have our ending ceremony around 10:00 am. Then, families will be able to enter the exhibits portion of the Zoo for the duration of the day. Lafayette Park is very pretty & will be ideal for our walk purposes.
Master of Ceremonies:
Margaret announced that Laura Gorney invited Regina Mobley (Channel 13) to MC our event & she has agreed. It’s terrific to have Regina on board & we will be working with her to see if Channel 13 will become a media partner with CureSearch to further exposure of the Walk.
