Mitchell Park, Palo Alto

Special Announcment:  Due to the tragic North Bay fires, and the impact on local air quality, our event has be rescheduled from October 14th to Saturday October 28th.  

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.
