Champaign combines picnic with neighborhood walk

CHAMPAIGN — The Champaign school district is hosting a welcome back picnic for its faculty, staff and friends of the school district, and will combine that event with a "Walk As One" neighborhood walk with the Champaign Community Coalition.

The picnic is scheduled for 4 to 6 p.m. next Friday at Garden Hills Elementary School, 2001 Garden Hills Drive, C. If it rains, the picnic will be in the school's gym.

The picnic will feature grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, a DJ, a faculty choir and student groups from around the school district.

The walk will be in the Douglass Park and Garden Hills neighborhoods. Registration for the walk will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the walk starts at 5:45 p.m.

The first 400 participants will receive a free "Walk as One" T-shirt.
