All you need to know about what to expect on walk day!
PLEASE NOTE: The walk will start on Dury Avenue, not in the Zoo. When you arrive for the walk, please proceed directly to the Cincinnati Walks for Kids area on Dury Avenue.
After a brief opening ceremony on Dury Avenue at 4:30 pm, we will proceed into the Zoo. Please do not enter the Zoo prior to the walk.
Who: Cincinnati Children's and you!
What: Cincinnati Walks for Kids – a scenic half-mile stroll through the Zoo to celebrate and raise money for Cincinnati Children's.
For participants wondering about walking up (or down!) the big "bear hill" at the Zoo while pushing wheelchairs or strollers, don't worry. While you'll be free to explore the entire zoo on your own after the walk, our route avoids the big hills to ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone.
When: Saturday, Sept. 28. Check-in starts at 3 pm, the walk starts at 4:30 pm.
Where: Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. No need to try and find street parking the day of the event, there will be plenty of free parking in our garages and surface lots. See directions and parking information.
Why: To raise money to support the Cincinnati Children's mission and to celebrate all of our patients and families
How: Register to walk, join a team or create a team. Registration is $25 for adults and $5 for children 17 years old and younger. All registered participants will receive an official 2013 Cincinnati Walks for Kids T-shirt, a personal fundraising page and exclusive admission to the Zoo for the evening.
