Dick’s Drive-In Restaurant is proud to announce the 4th Annual Dick’s Drive-In Walk-A-Thon this Sunday, September 7th!

Join us for 1 Day, 6 Dick’s Drive-In locations & 22 Miles as we walk and raise money to support our Change for Charity partners helping the homeless in our community.

If you don’t want to walk, you can still help by making a Change for Charity donation at any Dick’s Drive-In Restaurant. In honor of all our Walk-A-Thon attendees Dick’s pledges to match up to $2,000 of all donations given to our Change for Charity boxes on Sunday, September 7th!

Interested walkers are encouraged to gather at the Edmonds Dick’s Drive-In location at 10:30AM as we embark on a trek across Seattle to support our Change for Charity partners: Mary’s Place, First Place School, FareStart, ROOTS Young Adult Shelter, The Compass Center, Operation Nightwatch, St. Martin de Porres Shelter and Cocoon House.

Those walkers who make a $20+ donation at Edmonds will receive a punch card to take to each store and an orange t-shirt to wear on the trek. If you want to join us along the way follow updates on Twitter & Facebook to find the walk! Here’s the estimated schedule:

Edmonds – Depart at 10:35 AM
Lake City – 1:15 PM
Holman Rd – 3 PM

The Dick’s Drive-In Walk-A-Thon was originally started as the ultimate urban hike by Ballard High School graduates Lars Phillips & JP Osseward 3 years ago. We’re proud to officially team with and support this event alongside our awesome fans!
