Mission Bay, San Diego, CA


The San Diego Center for Children will hold its annual Walk for Kids on Saturday, November 3, on scenic Mission Bay, starting at 7 a.m. A fundraising event to benefit the San Diego Center for Children, and co-chaired by Jim Avery and Susie Sides, the Walk for Kids is a fun, family-friendly celebration, bringing together the children at the Center and supporters from the community for a 5K walk around Mission Bay.  This year’s Walk is the culminating celebration for the Center’s 125th year anniversary. Co-title sponsors of this year’s Walk are SDG&E and PAR Electrical.

Attendees can walk or run around the Mission Bay boardwalk and join the post-walk festivities including an interactive Vendor Village, skateboard demo, Kids Play Zone featuring Kid Ventures, face painting, balloon artists and more.

All walkers take home a free T-shirt souvenir as a thank you for helping us reach our goal of $125,000 that support the programs and services for the children and teens at the Center.

The event course starts at the grass area at the South end of the Crown Point Drive parking area and eventually curves north along Riviera shores, returning on the same path back to the starting area. Event check-in begins at 7 a.m. and the 5K walk begins at 8 a.m. Donations are encouraged and leashed dogs are welcome.
