As you know, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ALL of our 2020 MG Walks were combined with our MGFA Together We Stand virtual event which was held on October 10. We made this decision for the health and safety of our participants, sponsors, volunteers, and staff. We hope you were able to join us for that broadcast event, but if not, here is the video.
Furthermore, due to the uncertainty and unpredictability of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have unfortunately decided to move ALL 2021 spring walks into the fall timeframe. Our goal is to host actual in-person events next fall, but of course we will take the necessary precautions and make decisions about in-person events early next year. As always, your safety is and will continue to be our primary concern. The 2021 MG Walk dates will be available soon!
You can still raise money and fundraise for this year’s efforts by visiting your walk page at www.mgwalk.org. All fundraisers will receive the MG Walk t-shirt and other prizes based on your fundraising totals ($50 for MG Walk Cooler, $100 for the MG Walk t-shirt, $250+ for additional prizes).
Prizes for any fundraising done prior to Oct. 15 were already shipped so if you plan to do any fundraising from now until the end of the year, please contact email@example.com to inquire about your fundraising prizes.
