FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DO I WALK THE WALK THIS YEAR?  ANSWER: Our 13th Annual Walk the Walk has gone virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to ensure the safety of our participants and teams, we cannot congregate at The Community House as we normally would and have for the last 12 years. This year you can Walk the 5K  on your own terms, at a safe and social distance with your teams!

WHERE CAN WE WALK? ANSWER: You can Walk the Walk anywhere you want to OR you can Walk the Walk to downtown Hinsdale, Illinois on October 24 or 25 to support local businesses and stop by The Community House table to grab a balloon and learn more about The Counseling Center at The Community House.
