The Walk-a-thon for Flood Relief, hosted by the Virginia Living Museum, will take place throughout October at the Virginia Living Museum Boardwalk in Newport News.
Attendees will walk for the Virginia Living Museum at the event to help the museum recover from a destructive flash flood that occurred Aug. 25. The museum needs $50,000 to cover the insurance deductible, according to a museum press release.
Registration for Walk on the Wild Side is $20 and includes a T-shirt. Pledge forms are also available for people to solicit donations. The museum will award prizes to those who earn the most donations.
The museum is opening its boardwalk trail from 8:30-9 a.m. Monday through Saturday during October for people to walk. The museum is also asking people to walk anywhere and any time on their own or with a group during October.
Everyone is invited to participate.
Virginia Living Museum Boardwalk is at 524 J. Clyde Morris Blvd.
