Keeping schools open and safe is our first priority, so for now we're keeping our family events virtual to reduce the spread of COVID. When the COVID infection rate decreases, and vaccines are available for all age groups, we will resume our in-person walks in Las Vegas and Reno.

In the meantime:
  • Keep walking every day
  • Wear sunscreen
  • Bring water
  • Keep 6 feet from other people
  • For everyone 2 years and older, wear a mask when you aren't vaccinated and can't socially distance

We hope to "see" you at our future virtual walks. Registration details and flyers below.

Dear Nevada Parents: We know that pediatricians throughout our beautiful state of Nevada are recommending vaccines to you nearly every time you have an appointment for your child. What we don't really know, despite "experts who try to tell us they know", is how you, the parent, really feel about vaccinations. Don't let a few loud, but uncommon, opinions dominate this conversation. This is your chance to have your voice heard!

Estimados padres de Nevada: Sabemos que los pediatras de nuestro hermoso estado de Nevada les recomiendan vacunas casi cada vez que tienen una cita para su hijo. Lo que realmente no sabemos, a pesar de "los expertos que intentan decirnos lo que ellos saben, es cómo se sienten realmente ustedes, los padres, acerca de las vacunas. No permita que las opiniones que no son común, dominen esta conversación. ¡Esta es su oportunidad para que se escuche tu voz!
