There will be a bag/cooler check available on site if you bring your lunch. You can check your cooler when you check-in at the event, and pick it up when you’re ready to eat!

Bring-Or-Buy Picnic

Bring a lunch to enjoy following the walk or plan to purchase a meal from one of these great vendors! All vendors will be donating 10 percent of proceeds from the day to CCRF.

Some picnic tables will be available on a first come, first served basis but teams can earn a guaranteed picnic table through fundraising!

Resource Fair

We’ve gathered several organizations that provide resources to families facing childhood cancer to attend this year’s Time to Fly. Check out these resources to see what might be useful to you and your family. Specific booths will be announced soon.
