The Frank R. Williams Scholarship Fund is continuing the tradition of the annual "Walk with a Cause" but virtually! We want to give everyone the opportunity to participate and so this year we are MOVING WITH A CAUSE. Our virtual event consists of a two-mile walk, 5k run (or walk), and bike ride option. You can also simply find a way to get moving on Saturday, May 22 or May 23, 2021.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
1. Register today! You can register here.
2. Saturday, May 22 and/or Sunday, May 23, 2021 complete your walk, run, or ride.
3. When you’ve completed your chosen activity, you can submit your information (e.g., time, distance) by clicking 'Results' on this site.
4. Upload your own photos to our virtual photo booth.
5. Don't forget to tag us along the way #movewithacause #frwfund
