The event is Thursday, May 2, from 5:45 p.m.-7:45 p.m. starting at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center, with the walk/run around the perimeter of The University of Texas at Austin campus. The run route is approximately 2.8 miles, and the walk route is approximately 2.0 mile.
The fundraising walk/run will end around 6:45 p.m. followed with a cash bar happy-hour celebration at the Carillon restaurant patio. Anyone not interested in the walk/run portion are invited to save the date and join fellow attendees afterward at the patio to raise additional funds for this important cause.
