Root, root, root for your colleagues!

Are you ready to rally, cheer, and spread your infectious team spirit at the Cardinal Walk? We invite you and your team to join a Cardinal Walk cheer group.

The 17th annual Cardinal Walk will take place on August 10th this year, beginning with festivities in the Stanford Stadium before kicking off for a one-mile walk around campus.

As a cheer group, you’ll be stationed along the Cardinal Walk route to cheer participants on as they pass you by. Your group will be asked to:

  • Dress up according to the carnival theme. (Think of the classic “town carnival,” rather than Mardi Gras style). Costumes may be as simple or elaborate as your group desires.
  • Work together to create a sign with words of encouragement for participants passing by.
  • Be at your cheer station from 11:55 a.m. to 1 p.m.

At the finish line, walkers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite cheer group, and the winning team will be rewarded with $50 Massage Envy gift cards*.

Beyond the prizes, this event is all about fostering connection and team bonding. It’s a chance to forge stronger relationships and create long-lasting memories with your colleagues and the greater Stanford community. Let your cheer skills shine and showcase the true power of teamwork.

Register now and let your cheers echo throughout the event!
