Candy’s Place Walk is the Center’s biggest fundraising event of the year. Last year over 500 walkers joined to show their support for Candy’s Place. This year’s two mile Walk begins in Kirby Park and will continue at an easy pace around Wilkes-Barre.

Penny Cunningham, founder of Candy’s Place, was able to start the non-profit organization with proceeds from the first walk “The Rainbow Walk”. The number of participants continues to grow year after year. Individuals who would like to participate can register in advance online or at the 9 a.m. registration time in Kirby Park. Registration rates are $25 in advance or $30 on the day of the event.

This year we will be having a butterfly release in honor or memory of a loved one(s). Butterflies will be $7 each and include the butterfly and and your loved ones name displayed on customized signs along the path

Sign up, form a team or become a sponsor for the 20th Annual Walk. Sponsorship payments are accepted through April 27th.
