Frequently asked questions
Where is the 2021 Walk 4 Mountains event starting and ending?
Is there a "walk" this year?
HECK 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 - 5-mile route (TWICE FOR 10) You are my HARD CORE Walkers and Warriors! YES!

How do I donate to a specific walker/runner/team member OR just donate?

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?
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! At least to walked to the Green! That is where all the fun is going to be!
What are we having to eat?
