Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids is hosting the fifth annual West Side Walk for Gilda’s on Saturday, Sept. 21, to celebrate the West Michigan community in Grand Rapids’ West Side.

The 1.5 mile, noncompetitive walk will be followed by a block party with family-friendly activities, vendors, music and an opportunity to tour Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids. The walk will begin and end at Gilda’s Clubhouse, 1806 Bridge St. NW. Lunch will be provided to all.

While there is no fee to register for the walk, participants are encouraged to raise money in order to help support the Gilda’s Club program and raise awareness. Walkers are invited to set up a personalized individual or team fundraising website: by calling 616-453- 8300 or registering online: gildasclubgr.org/event/walk

Prizes and incentives are available for those who raise $100 or more. All proceeds directly support Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids.

The local Gilda’s Club, set in the heart of the city’s West Side, was funded and established by the community. Every supporter, from the Lakeshore to Lowell and Reed City to Kalamazoo, helps keep Gilda’s Club a free resource to those who need it most in the community.

Don't forget it's Saturday, Sept. 21, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Registration is at 11 a.m. with the walk starting at noon) at Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids Clubhouse,
1806 Bridge St. NW, Grand Rapids, 49504
