Starting January 5th, and every Saturday in January 2019, United Way of the Desert will be holding a 5K walk in different cities across the Coachella Valley. Each walk is FREE, but you're encouraged at each walk to bring an item that will be donated locally.
Here is the list of items we're asking for at each location
January 5th: Indio High School - Bring non-perishable food items to stuff a DSUSD bus full of food. The food will be donated to FIND Food Bank.
January 12th: Desert Hot Springs Mission Springs Park - Bring school supplies for elementary school students. These supplies will go to elementary schools in PSUSD.

January 26th: Palm Springs Health RunFitness Expo - Collecting new socks and sneakers for local shelters.
ALL WALKS ARE NOW FREE! You still need to register for the PS Health Run by clicking the link. Be sure to select the United Way of the Desert team to sign up - there's a free option and also a $35 option that gets you some great swag! We can't wait to see you for our month of walks as we become #UnitedinHealth!
