National Unbreakable Spirit® Walk-n-Wheel
To kick-off our National Conference weekend, the OI community will come together to participate in the National Unbreakable Spirit®Walk-n-Wheel for OI! Beginning at the JW Marriott, participants will walk or wheel one of Indianapolis’ most beautiful landmarks, the Canal Walk of White River State Park. You can choose between the 1k or 5k courses (or shorter!), both of which will end back at the JW Marriott where we will celebrate all of our participants and supporters. You can walk or wheel individually; form a team with your family, friends or support group members; volunteer; become a supporting sponsor; or show up to cheer on the sidelines. Help us take Indianapolis by storm and make the Unbreakable Spirit® of the OI community known! For more information or to set up your personal team raiser page, visit www.oif.org/WalkAndWheelIndy or contact Melissa Bonardi at email@example.com.
