Philadelphia WALK to End Hydrocephalus

* WEATHER UPDATE!! 5:30PM 9/22/23
After much consideration, due to Tropical Storm Ophelia and the projected wind gusts of 40-50mph, we are NOT going to be gathering tomorrow. Safety is our first and foremost concern when we gather and with the projected wind gusts, it will not be safe for us to get together.

We are looking into the possibility of postponing the walk to Sunday, October 29th and hope to make a final decision on this new date by early next week. Stay tuned! 

Please welcome our 2023 Honorary Chair, Dr. Christopher Farrell
Associate Professor, Neurological Surgery
Thomas Jefferson University
Christopher Farrell, MD

We will have some great guests attending. Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Philadelphia Fire Company, DJ and Facepainting are only part of the fun! Join us and drop off you Ambassador Avenue posters between 11AM-12PM and don't forget to stop in and get your team photos taken before we begin our opening ceremony at 12:15PM
