Early Registration Extended

With many local families facing uncertainty because of the recent evacuations, the Peg Taylor Center has been glad to be able to offer a continuing place of refuge to adults in need in our community, helping to minimize disruptions in their daily health care and services.

Thank you, everyone, for all of your amazing effort on behalf of those who needed to evacuate.

The Poppy Walk & 5k Run is coming up fast – March 11th is right around the corner! We are extending the Early Registration deadline until Wednesday, February 22nd. Please register any time between now and then for the lowest prices.

Thank you so much for all your support. We hope you and your family are keeping safe during this time.

The 7th Annual Poppy Walk & 5k Run will take place on Saturday, March 11th, 2017.

The Poppy Walk is a fundraiser for the Peg Taylor Center, which supports local people who are living with serious health conditions.

We help whole families thrive by providing medical and social services that improve both health and quality of life, helping people to be healthy, happy, and independent, even in the face of challenges.

Sponsor the Poppy Walk

We need your help! Sponsorships are key to the success of the Poppy Walk & 5k Run. We love the companies and families who sponsor the Walk, and we provide lots of sponsor recognition both before, during, and after the event. To learn more, click on the Sponsor tab above.

Save the Date – Plan a Team!

The Poppy Walk will take place on March 11th, in beautiful Bidwell Park, right at the start of the Spring 5k season.

Consider making up a team of coworkers, family, or friends – last year, teams brought the spirit, with lots of cheering and even some team costumes! This year, teams and individuals will have the opportunity to fund raise above and beyond their entry fees, and those who raise the most money for the Peg Taylor Center will be recognized and receive a prize. To learn more, click on the Teams tab, above.

A Heartfelt Thank You

To our sponsors, to our spirited participants, to everyone who walked and ran and volunteered and cheered people on, to the Poppy Walk planning committee, to everyone who continues to come together year after year to make the Poppy Walk & 5k Run a successful fundraiser and all-around fun event: Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. ❤ ❤ ❤

To Our Dear Friends

john preisnerWe are very pleased to announce that the Peg Taylor Center is now celebrating our 30th Anniversary! 

Since 1985, when we opened our doors through the gracious hospitality of a local church, we have worked hard to provide care that allowed people to thrive and improve their health even in the face of significant challenges. When it was time to grow and spread our wings, our community stepped up to the challenge — your donations and hard work ensured a successful capital campaign, and in 1992 we moved into the lovely, purpose-built building we still call home today. Year after year, whatever obstacles we faced, your contributions and volunteer hours have helped to fill the gaps. Your friendship has made our Adult Day Health Care community thrive. Thanks to you, we have supported thousands of individuals and families on their journeys of health and independence. Thank you. ♥

Now we’re getting ready to celebrate our history, and our partnership with all of you, with our sixth annual Poppy Walk and 5k Run, on Saturday, April 2nd, 2016! The Poppy Walk is our principal yearly fundraiser, and a great way to connect with the community. We would love for you to be involved, whether your company or family sponsors the event, you join with some friends and family and register a team, you just run in the 5k yourself, or even show up to cheer people on.

We know the Poppy Walk & 5k Run is still a few months away; this is a big year, so we’re starting early on the planning. Here are some things you can do right now to get involved!

 

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to the Fifth Annual Poppy Walk! We had a wonderful time and raised nearly $30,000 in direct and in-kind support for the Peg Taylor Center, thanks to our amazing sponsors, volunteers, and walkers & runners.

You can view the results of the timed run on Under the Sun’s website. We’ll have pictures up very shortly! In the meantime, please take a moment to check out all of our wonderful sponsors one more time. And thank you, again, for your support. It means the world to us and all of our Peg Taylor Center participants!
