Thank You for walking in 2019!
We look forward to walking in unity as we embrace our themed day “ONWARD” during the SevenDays® Faith, Love & Walk at the National World War I Museum and Memorial on Monday, April 15, 2019. Our goal of ONWARD… coming together, celebrating the ripples of kindness we achieve as a community. We encourage you to connect with one of the fourteen charities – on site both before and after the walk – to discover your personal Onward! Then stay for the celebratory atmosphere of connected community with music and food!
Participation from all religious/non-religious beliefs, races and cultures is encouraged & all ages are welcome. Children five and under walk free; but registration is required for each person participating in the walk.
Plan to arrive early for parking and to participate in Pre-Walk activities. Follow us on our Facebook page: GiveSevenDays, and Twitter @givesevendays for important updates, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
T-shirt Pickup: Please visit the sidebar to the right for T-shirt pick-up times and locations. Please wear your SevenDays® T-shirt to the Walk.
Pre-walk: Same day registration and T-shirt pick-up will also be available on the Southwest Lawn of the National World War I Museum and Memorial (just off the mall) beginning at 5:00 pm on April 15. Pre-Walk activities kick off at 5:30 pm, and the Pre-Walk ceremony starts at 6:00 pm. Be sure to check out our 14 charity partners who will be on site both before and after the walk itself!
Walk: The Walk will commence at 6:30pm along the mall just East of the Pre-Walk sound stage. Enjoy a variety of foods available for purchase upon completion of the approximately 1.5 mile route (route map & site detail – check back for possible updates). This is a family event and parents or guardians are expected to be with children under the age of 12. Strollers are welcome. Participants with service animals are also encouraged to participate (only service animals will be allowed, however).
Parking: If the ground is dry, ample parking will be available on the SW lawn of the National World War I Museum and Memorial. The museum is closed on Mondays, so a good number of spots should also be available along the mall and/or Kessler Road. Alternatives include: Crown Center, Union Station, or along the streetcar route, which stops at Union Station. Please note there may be an additional charge to park in garages.
Security: Help ensure a safe and enjoyable event by being aware of your surroundings. Promptly alert staff or security/police if you notice anything that seems unusual or suspicious. Keep this simple guide phrase in mind: “See something, say something.”
Prohibited Items: Alcohol, Animals/pets (service animals excepted), balloons, bicycles, skateboards, Segways, wheelies or roller blades, clothing deemed obscene or indecent, costumes that cover the face, folding chairs, camp chairs, and tables of any kind, confetti, glitter or streamers, backpacks, coolers of any kind, suitcases and rolling bags, drones of any kind, fireworks or sparklers, flammable liquids, toxic chemicals, and explosives, illegal drugs, weapons including but not limited to firearms & knives. Exceptions to the listed items will be at the discretion of the Security staff and may include items for medical, infant, child or immediate care. This is a private event. The event does not provide a “check” facility, so attendees are urged not to bring restricted items. All attendees are subject to search by security. You will be responsible for your own belongings at all times.

Our Faith, Love & Walk is on Onward Day. We named it Onward with the realization that we all have something in our lives from which to move Onward. To help each of us take action in moving Onward we host 14 charities at our Faith, Love & Walk. They need our help and perhaps you need their help, too. Take time to meet each charity on Monday, April 15th, 2019 and visit their website to learn how they might be your Onward.
