Participants to Walk in the Annual Shamu & You Family Walk at SeaWorld

Costumed characters, penguins, otters and other SeaWorld animals will greet walkers during the 7th Annual Shamu & You Family Walk at SeaWorld on Saturday, Oct. 5, at 7:30 a.m. Registration and pre-walk festivities begin at 6:30 a.m., at Marie Starns Park (formerly South Shores Park) in Mission Bay.

More than 4,000 participants are expected to take part in the annual walk to help raise money for Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego. Walkers can choose between the 1-mile or 4-mile course (the 1-mile course takes walkers through SeaWorld and the 4-mile takes them on a loop around Mission Bay Park).

Since 2007, more than $1.2 million has been raised for the critical, life-saving efforts of Rady Children’s. This year’s sponsors include SeaWorld San Diego and San Diego County Credit Union. For more information, visit www.shamuandyouwalk.com.
