About Our Great Strides Walk

We recently received communication from the La Crosse Parks team that our venue will be unavailable for the Great Strides Walk due to severe flooding and limited access to the Gun Shelter. 

We have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person portion of our Great Strides La Crosse Walk. We were unable to re-schedule/move the event due to the short turnaround time and limited availability in any of the La Crosse Parks.

Thank you so much for supporting this amazing event year after year. The website will remain live and fundraising is still encouraged. The recognition portal for those who raised money will still open in June to redeem your prizes. And remember – there still is a cooler chair for our top fundraiser this year!
