The nonprofit Santa Clarita Veteran Services Collaborative will hold a memorial walk fundraiser on Saturday and Sunday, August 22-23.
Here’s a note from the Collaborative organizers with more details:
“Last year we held a Memorial Backpack Walk that took us down one side of Lyons Avenue and back up the other side. We had a great turnout with entrants walking with their backpacks led by our current Collaborative President holding the American Flag.
“Afterward, everyone enjoyed burgers and ice cream.
“Due to the COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to hold a large in-person gathering, so we’ve decided to do it virtually this year on August 22-23.
“You can use this day to take a walk in your neighborhood, at a park, on a trail or along a beach as a means of raising funds for the Collaborative.
“Go to our Website (www.scv-vets.org or Facebook Page) and download your Walking Bib.
“Encourage your family, friends, co-workers to either join you or sponsor you.
“Take videos and/or photos and send them to us while you participate, and we’ll post them on Facebook as you walk.
“There will be a special prize for the most original backpack.
“To donate please go to our website and click on Donate and select your desired amount or if you prefer to send a check address it to: Santa Clarita Veteran Services Collaborative, 23222 Lyons Ave., Newhall, CA 91321.”
