July 4th, 2018
Thank you for making the 2017 event a huge success! The event donated $5,000 to the Walker Area Community Center, $1,000 to Walker Area Pregnancy Support, $300 to the American Legion Riders and $250 to Walker Youth Hockey. In 2018, we plan to allow for 75 additional participants next year. Still, the event may fill early again. We have a few improvements in mind.... Thanks again!! See you at the 2018 Waddle Like a Duck!
