The organization’s inaugural Walk the Walk at the Palm Beaches Marathon is at 10 a.m. Dec. 11 at the Meyer Amphitheater, 104 Datura St., in West Palm Beach.

The walk will take place on Flagler Drive, along the waterfront, and will consist of a 3-mile route (1.5 north and 1.5 south).

“Not only will this event fund programs for at-risk children in our area,” said Pamela Weinroth, executive director of the Children’s Foundation of Palm Beach County, “it’s a wonderful morning of family fun and activities.”

Funds raised will go to support specific programs at over 30 children’s nonprofit organizations. Since its inception, the foundation has raised over $16 million to fund the programs and it has fed, clothed, provided medical and dental services, kept abuse shelters open and sent at-risk children to summer camp, among other services.

Activities will include food stations with popcorn, pretzels and funnel cakes along with children’s activities, including balloon animals, face painting, action videos and more.

Parking opens at 8 a.m. and registration begins at 9 a.m.

Register at  Tickets are $50 for adults and $25 for kids under 12. VIP tickets, which include a special hospitality tent as well as valet parking, are $100. All participants will receive a medal and gifts.
