What began as a hopeful idea and a leap of faith is now in its fifth year. The fifth annual Walk 4 Women takes place Saturday, October 5, along the scenic Snoqualmie Valley Trail in Duvall.
The Walk 4 Women is a 13.2-mile fundraiser that will benefit Lifewire, formerly known as Eastside Domestic Violence, to help fund temporary shelter for women and their children until safe housing for them can be found. It will also benefit individual women at a Duvall transitional housing program. The event is open to everyone, and participants can walk as much or as little of the 13.2 miles as they like.
The Duvall Civic Club is sponsoring the walk, which begins at 10 a.m. at the McCormick Park Depot, at 26200 NE Stephens Street in Duvall. Participants can register at the Depot beginning at 9:15 a.m. that morning. Registration can also be done online at www.GetMeRegistered.com. The cost is $25 per individual and $40 per family. Children 12 and under who are with adults are free, and middle schoolers and high schoolers can walk for $10 each. The Walk 4 Women is designed to accommodate people of all ages and abilities. The trail is primarily flat.
