This year we are expecting 2,000 walkers due to the circumstances Hurricane Katrina has left us with. We want people to come out and participate as a way to help reduce the stress everyone has been feeling.
We all need a break these days. So many people and businesses are still displaced because of Katrina so we didn't really want to push the fund-raising side of the event and wanted to present it more as a way to relieve stress. Walking is good for the heart and a great way to relieve stress, which everyone needs these days.
