Additional Information

The Walk for LOVE & 5K is a health and fitness event open to everyone and appropriate for all ages. Both events are fundraising benefits for Shriners Hospitals for Children-Northern California, with proceeds helping to assure all children requiring specialized treatment receive the expert care they need, from birth to 18 years of age, regardless of the families’ ability to pay.

The Walk for LOVE provides walkers with a beautiful 1.5 mile course that includes portions of the UC Davis Medical Center campus and the beloved T Street Boulevard in East Sacramento. The 5K follows a similar course but includes additional portions of East Sacramento neighborhoods adjacent to the UC Davis Medical Center and Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Prior to the start of the run, participants will enjoy a Parade of Shriners in their fezzes from throughout Northern California and northwestern Nevada. The 5K is a timed event with age group awards and will begin following the parade at 9:10 a.m. The Walk for Love begins immediately following the run.

Once across the finish line, participants and supporters are invited to stay for post-event activities, entertainment and the opportunity to connect with other supporters, current and former patients, and hospital staff. Sign up today and join the fun in supporting our Shrine Kids!
