Why Walk?

 

The Walk and Family Festival is designed to enhance awareness of the psychological and social needs of children and families battling childhood cancer.  Our goal is to raise $85,000. The Walk raises 85% of our budget which covers the cost of our psychosocial programs and services.  These funds are not used for administrative or operating costs of the Foundation.

ACTIVITIES THIS YEAR 

 

Corn Hole Tournament
 
Play as an individual and raise funds for Mattie Miracle. First place winner receives four (4) Diamond Level tickets to a Nats vs Marlins game on July 8th.  There are awesome prizes for 2nd and 3rd place!
 
             
 
 
Psychosocial Initiative Wall Challenge
 
The more laps you complete around the track, the closer we get to funding our new initiative to create a psychological referrals program for children with cancer.  This referrals program will enable Mattie Miracle to connect qualified clinicians with children who have cancer and their families.  The program will be designed to support the mental health needs of families as well as fund access to these services.
 
 
New Activities this Year
 
Boot Camp (an incredible obstacle inflatable course), a 5-In-1 Combo moon bounce, a Caricaturist and a Reptiles Alive Show (a live exotic animal show, followed by a meet and greet with the animals). 
 
Back by popular demand: a Corn Hole Tournament, a Raffle, Lego activities, DJ music, a Magic Show, Face Painting, Crafts, a Bake Sale, Food Vendors, and Giant Lawn Games like Connect Four, Ladders and Giant Jenga.
 

      

               

Food Trucks!
 
We are pleased to announce this year that we will have several food trucks on site to provide food for sale.  We thank DC Empanadas, Big Cheese and Hershery's Ice Cream for supporting our cause!
