Swag bags. Every walk has them. Every carnival or community gathering where organizations are trying to say Thank you for joining the party has them. The Journey Home is no different...but I think our Swag bags are generously different! The first 300 walkers will receive a Swag bag with their completed registration form and walker fee.
