Lake Hollingsworth is a beautiful lake near the center of the City of Lakeland, with a scenic walking path surrounding its shores. While most of our Walkathons are a 3K walk, Polk County participants can opt for a 5K option all the way around the lake. Walkathon parking, opening ceremonies, and festivities will be held on the grounds of the lakeside First Presbyterian Church who has graciously opened its campus.
As with all of our Walkathon events, participants will enjoy a 3K walk, music, local vendors, our Southeastern Guide Dogs Gift Shop, and family-friendly fun! And most importantly of all, we’ll raise funds to open new doors of independence for people with vision loss and veterans with disabilities, and offer them our gift of the best guide dogs and service dogs in the world.
We can’t wait to see you at the Polk County Walkathon!
