Prior To The Walk Event organizers provide coffee, water, fresh fruit, bagels and granola bars. Take some time to visit the informational booths, register for the drawings, grab and wear your memory beads, visit the memory wall and watch the memory video. Please also take time to listen to the inspirational speakers.
Look for our sign with Chip’s photos and white balloons with his image for our gathering place.
After The Walk You’re invited to lunch after the walk: please join our family for one of Chip’s favorite meals of Pozole at the Avalon Apartments Mission Bay Courtyard. Thank you team member, Mark Guthrie, for reserving this space for us. We will have use of outdoor cooking area, fireplace, tables & chairs and an accompanying room with restrooms. We look forward to relaxing and catching up with you after the walk. If you’re unable to walk you can still join us at the Avalon courtyard. You can also support by cheering on walkers at the event.
Directions to Avalon It is a short walk to the building from the parking lot area of Mission Creek. Walk across the bridge on 4th and take a left on Berry street. You’ll see the Avalon buildings on the right. Meet on Berry Street, between 4th and 5th Streets at the top of the steps by the gate. If one of our walkers is not there to let you in, call Ruben 650 255-3913, Paula 650 255-7317, Kierin 650 922-9362, Ian 415 694-1106
Reminder The walk has been moved to Mission Creek Park a new location. The hope is that this location in the AT& T Park & Embarcadero area will be more scenic from start to finish, and will be more visible to the public to help raise awareness and be more accessible to reach by public transportation. I’ve been assured by the walk organizers that the walk will be 2 1/2 miles with plenty of volunteers along the way.
Parking Organizers are still trying to work out parking in the area, but they will probably use a Public Parking Lot on Fourth Street and there may be a fee of $10.00. We will keep you posted when we learn more. Driving and public transportation: missionbayparks.com
