About the Hearts of Gold Mall Walk
The Hearts of Gold Mall Walk is a fun event for families and company employees alike. It's a great way to get out of the home or office, build team camaraderie and get a little winter exercise while helping expand medical services for children. You will feel good about being a part of it!
To participate, you must register as an individual or join or start a team here. Once registered, you will receive a personal or team fundraising page so you can start raising funds immediately. You may also collect donations offline with the tools on the Registration page.
On February 1, 2014 you and/or your team can check in at the University Park Mall in Mishawaka beginning at 7:30 a.m. and continuing throughout the morning. Walkers may start at any time between 7:30 am and 9:30 am.
This year, teams can choose to enter at either of two registration areas. One will be located on the east side of the mall through the doors next to Barnes & Noble. The other entrance will be located on the west side by Pat’s Pet Store. Please make arrangements ahead of time with your team captain as to where you will meet your team. Any funds collected in-person must be turned in at registration.
