Lake Hollingsworth (begins at First Presbyterian Church)
175 Lake Hollingsworth Dr.
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 music, local vendors, our Southeastern Guide Dogs Gift Shop, and family-friendly fun! And most importantly of all, we’ll raise funds to help open new doors of independence for our graduates, and offer them our gift of the best guide dogs in the world.
We can’t wait to see you at the Polk County Walkathon!
