WHAT TO EXPECT: 
Be ready to hear from inspirational speakers during our opening ceremonies, interact with fellow walkers, visit our sponsor and activity booths, and more. We'll have special buttons available for those diagnosed with primary immunodeficiency (PI) and their close supporters, and make sure to fundraise $125 to qualify to receive a Walk for PI incentive t-shirt. 
 
After you finish the walk, you can join other walkers in the Grove to relax before exploring the zoo, which features the award-winning Giants of the Savanna Habitat where elephants mingle alongside giraffes, zebras, ostriches, impalas, and guineafowl, as they do in Africa!


WALK DAY ROUTE: The route will take you through Zoo North past flamingos, the primate palace, and tigers, then end in the centrally located Grove picnic area.
 
FUNDRAISING PERK: 
Wear your shirt with pride! Participants will qualify for a Walk for PI t-shirt when they raise $125. Be sure to mark your t-shirt size when you register.  

Raising $125 ensures that we can not only cover the cost of our walks but also increase what the Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) can achieve to improve the lives of those living with primary immunodeficiency (PI). Because of your support, IDF can continue to provide educational resources and programs at no cost to individuals and families, power critical-patient focused research, and lead the way in the fight to improve diagnosis and access to treatment. 


TIPS ON FUNDRAISING: 
While there is no fundraising minimum, participants are encouraged to raise $125 and more. You will receive recognition gifts when you meet certain milestones. Be sure to check out our Fundraising Resources for tips and suggestions on how to fundraise in your community and on social media!
