What is the “Walk-n-Roll”?

The Walk-n-Roll for Spina Bifida is a family-friendly, one mile walk event being held to raise awareness about Spina Bifida. The name “Walk-n-Roll” was selected because it embodies a sense of inclusiveness and invokes the sense of empowerment which the Spina Bifida Community embraces in all that it does. A belief in a better tomorrow is our vision and the steps taken in this walk represent steps on a path to realizing that dream. Donors and walkers will support individuals with Spina Bifida by signing up for their favorite team.

This event is sponsored, in part by:

Miss Janet Harding has been dedicated to bettering the lives of others since long before she served our state as Miss Washington 2008. She is working towards a dual degree in Elementary and Special Education, with a double major in Social Studies and Communications concentrating on non-profit work and bilingual education. She is an advocate and spokesperson for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, promoting the importance of positive mentoring relationships for children for the past eight years. Since 2006, Janet has served on the Board of Directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Washington and has been invited to speak nationally on behalf of this organization. She also promotes Children’s Miracle Network and is a national spokesperson for the National Meningitis Association. Through her years of service Janet has created and directed state-wide fund raisers helping to fund raise approximately $750,000 for these causes - her determination to continue to make a positive impact is unwavering. Miss Harding's passion for children and individuals battling illness and disease comes from her own personal health history battles. After traveling the country as a public speaker, competing at the nationally televised 2009 Miss America Pageant, and appearing on TLC's reality show, “Countdown to the Crown”, Janet has persevered and made it her goal to encourage others to defy the odds and empower themselves to reach their dreams.
