Walk Details 2023!
Thank you for your generous support to ensure Families Facing Cancer Never Walk Alone.
We are so thrilled to walk with you on Sunday at Citizen’s Bank Park! Thanks for your hard work as you fundraised to help give families a break from cancer.
Please keep in mind our Walk is rain or shine! In the event of rain, we will walk the warning track and take dugout photos, however, the bases would no longer be available to round per the Phillies’ guidelines.
While we hope for clear skies, we do want to prepare for the possibility of rain, so please come prepared with appropriate rain gear and anticipate that there might be some changes in programming. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all!

Both dugouts will be used for photos and will have the same backdrop. Please be reminded that as you round Third base, be sure to have your ENTIRE party ready to go into the dugout for the picture. If your team registered by April 25th, a team sign is available to hold in your photo.
