Friday Night Fun Walk

Date: July 20, 2018

Time: approx 7:15

Location: Macungie Memorial Park softball field


For those of you who don’t run 5K’s, The Ben Event 1 Mile Fun Walk is for you!  Our walk incorporates 3 things that Ben loved….taking walks around his hometown of Macungie, t-shirts and sharing memories!  The Fun Walk will be approximately 1 mile immediately following the Special Olympics Softball Game (approx 7:15 p.m. walk start time)

Participants are encouraged to gather your friends and family to create teams of 10 or more to walk around Macungie Park and lead the group to the Bandshell where we will welcome our 2017 Award Recipients followed by music featuring The Large Flowerheads.  The walk will be stroller-friendly and an easy, mostly paved route.



2) GATHER YOUR FAMILY-FRIENDS & CO-WORKERS.  Teams of 10 or more are encouraged to participate.  The sky is the limit!  No team is too large or too small – all are welcome!

3) GET CREATIVE.  Of course our Fun Walk is in Ben’s honor and monies raised will go to support The Ben Event and the Yorgey Foundation long-range plans, however if you have a loved one or a cause you and your Team would like to represent during our walk, please do so!  Create your own t-shirts for easy Team identification, wear the same hats, funky sunglasses, costumes, badges – BE INSPIRED!  We can’t wait to see what you all come up with.
