Route and Distance

2012 July 30
by Linda J. Pugliese

The 5K Walk/Fun Run route begins at Guadalupe River Park & Gardens, adjacent to HP Pavilion at Julian and St. John, Downtown San Jose, follows the Guadalupe River Trail to the Children’s Discovery Museum and loops back to the Guadalupe River Park & Gardens.  Plenty of park benches to sit and enjoy the scenery and Leos to point the way.  We will even have some SJPD officers in full bike uniform riding the route to ensure safety.

We start at 9:30 a.m. and City of Hope personnel will be there to speak to us about the progress being made at City of Hope.

Event Day Festivities
We end the walk at the park where the Italian Family Festa will just be starting at 11:00 a.m.  Now in its 32nd year, the Italian Family Festa has evolved and flourished drawing over 25,000 attendees annually.  There you will enjoy live continous entertainment, wine tasting, grape stomping, bocce, and lots of arts and crafts.  A nice way to spend the rest of our day after supporting City of Hope in their quest to eradicate women’s cancers.  Admission is free and parking is free.
