Hop to it, Sunflower friends! It's that time of year again. Join us Sunday, April 2, 9:30 am, for a crazy playful walkathon at John Prince Park, 2700 Sixth Avenue South, in Lake Worth.
This event is open to families of all ages and abilities, as well as strollers. The walkathon path will include hopscotch, music making, walking like your favorite animal, and much more!
Family registration is only $50 for a family of up to 2 adults and 4 kids! Money raised will benefit Sunflower Creative Arts' Play + Nature + Arts programs.
Looking forward to Hopping with everyone! Here are a few things to remember about the event, in order to have the best time:
Directions to John Prince Park
Hop Check in and Registration starts at 9:30am at the Center Drive Pavilion at John Prince Park in Lake Worth. GPS for the park’s address is not perfect. Enter at the South Congress Ave. entrance of the park, which is at approximately 3000 Prince Drive, where Prince crosses Congress. Once inside the park, there will be signs directing you to the Center Drive Pavilion (located next to the playground).
What to Bring
Please bring hats, sunscreen, bug repellent and water to be safe while hopping, skipping and jumping. If you plan to hang out after the walk at John Prince Park, feel free to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy the day with other Sunflower families!
What to Expect
Check in and registration start at 9:30 am. Susan will do a Silly Walk Warm Up at 9:55 am, and we'll have a Trumpet Fanfare to start things off at 10:00 am. For everyone's safety and enjoyment, we'll be staggering the start, so be sure to pay attention to start line details when you check in. Families are welcome to walk the path as fast or slow, and as many times as they'd like, 10:00 – 11:00 am.
Parents are required to stay with their children along the walk route, and all hoppers should respect wildlife in the nearby lake by staying on the walk route and away from the water.
Following the walk, there will be light refreshments at the large Center Drive Pavilion, and we'll announce all the prize winners and our grand total at 11:30 am.
As of Friday morning, Sunday's forecast is expected to be partly cloudy and warm. In case of extreme, severe weather, we will communicate with registrants via Facebook, email, and/or text to announce if we need to postpone the event to a safer, future date.
Donations and Prizes
Remember, you have until Sunday at 11:00 am, the end of the event, to get donations! If you have your eyes on one of the Prize Packages, please remember that Sunflower executive staff are NOT eligible.
Still have friends hoping to join? They can register at the event. The cost is $50 for a family of up to 6.
HUGE thanks to ALL our Hop volunteers for everything you've done to make sure this event is a success! And teams– thanks to your fundraising hustle, as of now, we've raised $15,481, which is 91% of the way to our goal of raising $17,000!!
We can't wait to Remember Play with you on Sunday!
