Communications Coordinator Tammy Hrab says this year’s event, unlike last year where it was put together last minute, will be better organized.
The concept came about as a way to celebrate Earth Hour, and because many in the Peace are suffering from “cabin fever”, a way to get outside, especially that evenings are getting a little longer.
Hrab says registration is going slowly, but she’s not surprised, saying most people in Fort St. John do things at the last minute. Last year, 80 walkers and runners turned out for the event.
It begins and ends at Northern Lights College.
Registration is at 6pm with the event, itself, beginning at 7.
Early bird registration is $20 and can be done through the NEAT office. On Saturday, it’ll be $25 dollars per adult or $40 for the entire family.
Complete information on Saturday’s walk/run can be found on the group’s website: www.neat.ca.
