Your group, stationed along the Cardinal Walk route, will cheer walkers on as they pass by. At the finish, walkers will be asked to vote on their favorite cheer group. All members of the winning team will receive a $50 Amazon gift card. If you are interested in participating, please email the event coordinator, Jamie Silacci, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
