Mitchell Park, Palo Alto

Since 1976 Kara has been providing compassion and care to those grieving in our community. This special event is a unique opportunity for individuals and community organizations and businesses to walk or run in memory of a loved one…to walk or run to support friends, family or someone grieving the loss of a loved one.... and to help Kara sustain its crucial services.  Our goal is to see over 300 participate on this meaningful day while raising more than $50,000 for Kara's important services.  Please join us! 
 If you'd like to volunteer contact Kara at
There is a $25 donation to walk and $35 donation for the run. Walkers and Runners should register before the walk/run online, or can register the day of the event on site. Drop-ins are all very welcome! All children under 12 walk free.  Walkers and runners are encouraged to set up their own fundraising webpages for the event. AND, the E F Harris Family Foundation has pledged to MATCH every dollar given in support of the Walk'n'Run - up to $15,000.  Your donations and supporters donations can be doubled! See further instructions below to set up a Fundraising Team. 
Refreshments and Fun
After the Walk, a festival with fun games for kids and families will be available as well as delicious food,  refreshments and live music.  Additionally, a closing ceremony will include prizes for different walk categories (largest team, most funds raised, etc.).
