Frequently asked questions
Where is the 2020 MASKerade event happening?
Is there a "walk" this year?
YES! with OPTIONS. Option 1 - it is 0.5 miles around the green. Which means if you want to do the 10 mile walk you need to walk around the block 20 times. The good news is you will have LIVE MUSIC to listen to and plenty of folks cheering you on at every step of the way! OR Option 2 - if you are walking virtually, I would use your car first to figure out 10 miles. Really five miles so you don't have to walk 20 back to your house :) OR Option 3 - 5-mile route (TWICE FOR 10) You are my HARD CORE Walkers and Warriors! YES!

Where is the money going?
All (100%) profits will be divided between three local groups; Step Sisters, Loudoun Breast Health Network, and Our Perfect Warrior. All of which are wonderful local organizations that support those in the thick of treatment. They help pay bills, take care of children, yard work, house cleaning, rides to chemotherapy – things that do not take care of themselves when you are sick.

What if I am unable to walk the whole way?
Impossible to do this year! Our goal is to get the money raised to the people that need it - we don't care how far you go! (You know we never have!) We are just proud of you for getting up so early in the morning to join us...this year you get to sleep in and start when you want!
What is the MASKerade event?
It is a HYBRID (in-person and LIVE FEED/Virtual) WALK/CONCERT at the "Green". We will have LIVE music, Great food and Drinks available supplied by our local businesses, CVS is bringing flu shots, and local salons will be there to cut your hair on the green! Bring your blankets and chairs to listen to the bands and BRING YOUR MASKS!
What are we having to eat?
This is a very important question...
