The 8th Annual Poppy Walk & 5k Run will take place on Saturday, April 7th, 2018.

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 Poppy Walk, and we provide lots of sponsor recognition before, during and after the event. To learn more, go to PoppyWalk.org/sponsor.

Save the Date!

The Poppy Walk will take place on April 7th, in lower Bidwell Park, right at the start of a beautiful Spring.

Run or walk individually, or consider making up a team of coworkers, family and friends! Teams and individuals will also be able to fundraise beyond entry fees, competing for top earner.

Registration will open soon!


Thank You for a Wonderful Poppy Walk! ❤

Saturday was so wonderful! The weather was gorgeous, and we had so much fun with everyone! Check out the recap from Action News Now here. If you were a timed runner, you can get your results here. And head over to our Facebook page to see photos and add your own!

Together, you helped us raise $34,000 that goes directly to the services of the Peg Taylor Center. We couldn’t have done that without all of you, and all of our wonderful sponsors:

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.
