UMD's Malosky Stadium is again the host.

Money raised helps the STEPS Fitness Center, a specialized workout center for people of differing abilities who use UDAC.

Barbara Tuttle loves working out at STEPS, and wants people to come to the walk. "Walking is good. It's better for your own health."

Bill Watson, a Hobey Baker Award Winner, is one of the honorary co-chairs this year. His son uses STEPS, and is encouraging everyone to come visit the campus for the event.

"I think it's a great opportunity. We'll have all the UMD athletes here, and the band, and of course you get to meet Champ the Bulldog," he explained.

Individuals can walk for $25, families for $40. You can register at the event. Registration begins at 9, with the walk at 9:30am.
