Organizers are doing all they can do to make sure everyone who takes park in the hike is safe from COVID-19.

“The vendors and stuff just aren’t going to be present this year we will have masks available, we will have hand sanitizer available for everybody so social distancing is obviously on our minds to keep our participants safe but also continue to raise funds for our veterans,” said Sonja Cronin, committee member for FW22.
