Purchase a special reminder of why we walk
Mission markers will be placed along the walk route for those you are walking in honor of or in memory of a loved one. Once the walk is over, take your mission marker home and put it in your own garden to continue to honor your loved ones.
Cost: 1 for a $10 donation, or 3 for a $25 donation.
Order your mission marker ahead of time by contacting the American Lung Association at 262.703.4200 or Events@LungWI.org. They will also be available for purchase the morning of the walk.
