Registration is open the day of the event. We ran out of XX-Large shirts for those who register Friday or Saturday.
Wear layers. Dress for the cool temps in morning but be ready to shed as it warms up for the walk. Due to some forest fires, air quality warnings have been issued during some days this week and could happen Saturday. If you are sensitive to low air quality, watch the news for updates in Chattanooga to decide if you should walk.
8:30: Check-in open at Pavilion at Coolidge Park. Pick up your shirts!
* Registration also open and merchandise is for sale in Pavilion too.

* Get your team picture taken by the Stellar Therapy vendor table.
