AHA! Presents rock the walk

This year’s seventh annual fall fundraiser benefits AHA!’s commitment to the healthy development
of teens in the Santa Barbara community. Following check-in, participants will follow a designated route along the glorious Santa Barbara waterfront. Walkers, runners, and bikers will have options as to the desired length of their  course. The event culminates in a celebration of community in the Funk Zone at Loquita's parking lot and patio with live music, delicious Helena Avenue Fare, local vendors,
Babcock wine tasting, a children's zone, and a raffle.

Participants are asked to raise a minimum of $250 in donations to be eligible to join the walk. We encourage those interested to join teams and walk with friends, family members, and colleagues.
