      EVENT DETAILS
      2019 Kindness Matters Walk & Virtual Walk

      The Kindness Matters Walk is held on Thanksgiving morning every year in Fullerton, CA. Proceeds from the walk go towards the KM Legacy Foundation (www.kmlegacyfdn.org). There are a few ways to participate in the walk or support the foundation.  If you’re planning to be in Fullerton Thanksgiving morning you can be part of the Main Walk starting/ending near the Courthouse. For those unable to walk or unable to be in Fullerton on Thanksgiving morning, there is a Virtual Walk that you can sign up for to be part of this great event. You can also join in the raffle drawing we plan to hold after the walk, and the winners do not need to be present for the drawing. The MAIN WALK will be approx. 3 miles along the bridle trails in Fullerton.  It’s a relatively flat out & back route with a few minor elevation changes and water available at the halfway point.  The water station is “cupless”, so please be sure to bring your own water bottle.  There are 3 street crossings along the actual walk-route, so please follow all traffic rules during the event.  There are two ticket options for the Main Walk. The first is a $10 Base Ticket that allows participation in the walk and also comes with snacks, drinks, and a goodie bag at check-in. The second option is a $45 Premium Ticket that includes everything from the Base package along with a unique commemorative T-Shirt. The Premium tickets will provide more funds towards the KM Legacy Foundation, so we encourage anyone who can afford it to purchase a Premium ticket package. Plus, you get a super cool T-shirt! Special Note: There will be NO same day registration available for the Main Walk and anyone signing up for the Premium ticket package must have their shirt-size added at least 1 month prior to the event in order to guarantee receipt of their T-shirt the morning of the walk. The VIRTUAL WALK allows anyone to participate in this great event no matter where you happen to be in the world on Thanksgiving morning.  You can walk a similar 5K distance or as far as you want or as little as you want. We encourage everyone to take photos along the way or wherever you may be the morning of the walk and share them on social media using the hashtag #KMwalk2019.  There are two pricing options for the Virtual Walk.  The first is a $10 Base Ticket option that allows you to support and participate in this great fundraising event. The second option is a $45 Premium Ticket package that adds the bonus of a commemorative T-Shirt and Goodie Bag that will be shipped to you. Be sure to add your home/shipping address to your registration when signing up for the Premium Virtual Walk. The entry fees are not a tax-deductible donation.  If you wish to make a charitable tax-deductible donation on top of any walk fees, you can do so at any time on the KM Legacy Foundation website and make the donation directly on that site at www.kmlegacyfdn.org. We’re also allowing for TEAMS to be created this year, so get all your friends and family together to show your collective kindness. You never know, there may be some bonus prizes for the biggest group of kindness on the trail. Participation in a team is not required at all, just an option to add to the fun and increase your ability to raise funds and awareness. If you have any questions about setting up a team or joining a team, please contact the walk administrator. RAFFLE – We’re adding a raffle drawing this year that will take place towards the end of the walk near the start/finish area. You can pre-purchase raffle tickets during your online walk sign-up at a cost of $10 each, or they can be purchased in person the morning of the walk. Purchasing online in advance will save time on event day (no need to handwrite your contact info on tickets) and also gives us a better gauge of participation to build the prize pool. So, please purchase online during your sign-up if you are able to. You will get your tickets in person when checking in for the walk as part of your own personal event pack, and then you can drop them into the individual prize boxes on display near the check-in area. Put as many purchased tickets you want into the box for the prize you desire most to increase your chances of winning that prize, or spread your tickets evenly across multiple prizes if that’s your plan of attack. Most of the prizes will range in value from $100 - $1,000 but we won’t be able to share the details on the actual prizes until the week leading up to the walk. Prizes are likely to include things like major sports tickets/memorabilia, Apple and other electronics products, restaurant gift packs, retail gift packs, etc. Raffle winners do NOT need to be present at the walk or at the final drawing. We will have contact information on the tickets and will reach out to any absent winners after the walk. We will also handle virtual participant requests to place tickets in their respective boxes via email direction to the walk administrators. If you have any questions about the raffle, please be sure to ask before completing your original sign-up and ticket purchase. Don't forget to use the hashtag #KMwalk2019 when sharing pics and updates on social media.
