Helen’s Walk, the annual 5K event presented by the Helen Keller National Center for Deaf-Blind Youths and Adults, is scheduled for April 29. Recently, the event committee at HKNC created a very user-friendly and interactive Facebook page for the Helen’s Walk.
You can find this new page by signing onto Facebook and going to Helen’s Walk HKNC) or, you can log onto www.HKNC.org and follow the links to the walk and to Facebook.
Once you “like” the page, the Helen’s Walk (HKNC) will keep all participants up-to-date with the latest news about the walk. You can also get to the registration link on this page as well. HKNC is expecting a strong turnout for this event. Every year, this event becomes more popular. The walk provides a great way to enjoy the beauty of Sands Point as you walk with a purpose, to support people who live without sight and sound.

The finish point and complimentary refreshments will be held at the Helen Keller National Center. A sponsor contribution is required. All walkers who raise $50 or more will receive a free gift.
