The event begins at 10 a.m., when walkers are asked to gather at two main assembly points. Residents of Chandler, Gilbert, Scottsdale and Phoenix are asked to begin at the Town Lake Marina, while those from Tempe, Guadalupe, Mesa and Arizona State University will start from the Tempe Center for the Arts. The groups begin the mile-long walk to Beach Park at 10:30 a.m.
