2021 Winston-Salem, NC Step Up for IC/BPS - ICA Awareness Walk

Sat September 18, 2021 Winston-Salem, NC 27101 US Directions

The Step Up for IC/BPS Winston-Salem Walk is now VIRTUAL!

We have an IMPORTANT UPDATE. The Winston-Salem Walk has been changed to a VIRTUAL event and will no longer take place as a LIVE event on Saturday, September 18.

Due to the concerns of Covid and the delta variant, the event has been shifted to a virtual event to ensure the safety of all participants.

While we still encourage all of you to participate this Saturday by walking in your community, we are also extending the invite for you to join us VIRTUALLY next week for our organization-wide Step-Up for IC/BPS – ICA’s Virtual Awareness Walk Week taking place September 20-24, 2021, as part of ICA’s ICare month offerings.

Please register HERE for our organization-wide VIRTUAL Walk that takes place starting NEXT Monday! We look forward to "seeing" you on Monday!

Thank you for your support!
