Eligibility is by a pledge sheet or donation. Following the walk, PHS staff will be giving out a variety of prizes, generously donated by various local stores.

The craft fair will run from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the arena. Admission is free. Food, face painting and music by a local DJ will be available throughout the day along with a special appearance in the morning by Cubby T. Clown.
