10th Annual Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida® and 3rd Annual 5k Run for Spina Bifida

Walk-n-Roll for Spina Bifida!

Please note, this event was originally scheduled for May 16, 2020.

Join us on September 5, 2020 for our 10th annual Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida® and 3rd annual 5k Run for Spina Bifida in Central Park, Schenectady. This event raises critical funds, increases awareness of Spina Bifida, and celebrates the accomplishments of the 166,000 Americans living with Spina Bifida. The "Walk-N-Roll" name embodies a sense of inclusiveness and invokes the sense of empowerment which the Spina Bifida community embraces in all that it does. A belief in a better tomorrow is our vision and the steps taken in this walk and run represent steps on a path to realizing that dream. All proceeds remain local and are used for programs and services for people with Spina Bifida and their families.
