Moving Day 2015!

MovingDay_FullColor4Moving Day 2015 is coming faster than it seems. The date for this year’s walk is Sunday September 13th, and we will be celebrating at Coca Cola Field once again. We are looking to exceed the great success we achieved last year, so we’ll need an incredible effort to bring back last year’s teams and to encourage new ones to join the effort! Let’s build in the more than $70,000 raised last year!

Thank you to our sponsors and the entire community for supporting this event! We hope to see you this year!
