Join San Diego Coalition of Reason members for this worldwide freethought effort to support the LLS in honor of Christopher Hitchens.
Meet other members of our team outside the Omni Hotel at the southeast corner (just west of Petco Park). Debbie Allen will be waiting at 5:30 pm on the walkway by the train tracks - just south of the southeast corner of the Omni Hotel (on the west side of Petco Park). Look for Debbie in our new SDCoR t-shirt. (If you'd like one, send Debbie a note. They are $15 each and come in men's and women's styles.)
Registration is free and there is no fundraising requirement for the walk. If you decide to ask friends/family/coworkers for contributions, a grant from the Stiefel Freethought Foundation will double your efforts. If you personally raise $100 you will receive goodies from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at the walk including a free t-shirt and a free dinner
