No matter how we Waddle, we always infuse the event with camp spirit. This year, generous alumni made participation gifts. Race participants chose from turtle-themed cookies (from Michelle Quinn of Lump Cookies), turtle-shaped soaps (from Carly Galvin of Wild and Free Soapery), and flower/vegetable/herb seeds from Lisa Perks.

The Process 

[The 2021 Waddle Has Concluded]

Sign up for the virtual Waddle by making a $15 donation for each person registering through the secure Kindful platform. (The donations need not be separate; a whole family can register all at once.)

Lisa Perks will email everyone who made a donation through Kindful a brief Google form to to submit their walk/run times. (Submit multiple forms if you registered multiple people.) The form will also ask individuals/families to rank order participation gift preferences. Google forms will be sent out on 5/7. If you don’t receive yours, just email Lisa Perks (lisa@smithpark.org).

Run or walk a 5K (3.1 miles) any time from May 8-17. (Please follow social distancing protocols as needed.) To figure out a 5K route, you can use a fitness watch that tracks distance, use mapping software (such as Map My Run), mark out the distance in your car, or use a track and do 12 laps + 160 meters (almost half a lap) to set up the distance.

Notes about participation gifts: These will be mailed. To keep costs down, we’re only mailing one type of gift to each household. You’ll have to make a group decision on what you want. If 4 people in your family Waddled and you pick soaps, we’ll send your household 4 soaps. We also have a limit on each item so our generous volunteers can plan ahead: 60 cookies, 50 seeds, 40 soaps. Participation gifts will be sent out based on who submits their race time first. If you want your first choice of prizes, Waddle as close to 5/8 as you can.
