Included in this year's activities is the Wellness Expo, featuring women’s health and wellness. The Wellness Expo has booth sponsors that include Sanford Active Spine, Oien Chiropractic, Weight Watchers, Aaron Spade (massage therapist) and many others.

Team Concept
Walkers can be organized into teams by team captains. It is the responsibility of the team captain to recruit as many people as possible for their team. Each team member then obtains donations to be applied to their individual walker’s total. Donation sheets and collection envelopes will be provided to each walker by the team captain. Please collect all money pledged and deliver to your team captain along with your donation sheet by April 16.

Individual Walkers
If a team concept is not your style, we still encourage you to participate. Register as an individual walker with a $60 donation. You and a friend can join us and still be eligible for lots of prizes. Return the registration form and donations to the Augustana Athletic office by April 21.
