Inspiration Walk

Come Out for the 14th Annual Inspiration Walk

You don’t want to miss this year’s Inspiration Walk! Come and participate in all the festivities before the walk.  Plus, there will be prizes raffled at each booth as well as over 80 prizes raffled off at the end of the walk including a Hero GoPro camera donated by DARCARS and four Visit Cards  for any urgent care services at Righttime Medical Centers.

We will be having our Zumba warm-up and be entertained by one of our athletes, Wendy Jimenez, and her mother who will dance a traditional folklore from Mexico. Win Kelly (our Softball Team Sponsor) and DARCARS will be displaying some cars.Abradkadoodle will be on hand to do face painting. The Howard County Fire and Rescue will be instructing on how to do CPR.  Other booths include New Beginning Pediatric Rehab, Corridor Mortgage, the Health Department (with Healthy Howie greeting the walkers), Howard County Recreation and Parks, the WLIP 101.9, the Chick fil-a mascots,  and many more. The Oriole and Poe birds will be there, as well as the  Hogettes, and of course, the photo booth will be up and running for some great memory shots (all available on our smugmug page after the walk).

Posters recognizing our sponsors as well as posters of our athletes in action will be posted around the walk venue. If you are interested in showcasing an athlete or team, the cost is $40.00 each or 3 for $100.00. Send photo to Robin Phillips at MROBIN.PHILLIPS@gmail.com and send the check to Special Olympics Howard County, 8970 Route 108, Suite A-1, Columbia, MD 21045. The deadline for ordering the poster is April 10th. Posters from past years can be used but must be dropped off at the SOHO office by April 10th.
