The O.C. chapter of United Way and the Angels Baseball Foundation are teaming up for the third annual WALK UNITED event, set for this Saturday at Angel Stadium.

O.C. United Way is coordinating registration for walkers and their sponsors; more than ten days before the event, spokesperson Shaleek Wilson said that the group had already registered more walkers – an estimated 1,500 – than the total number of participants in last year’s event, and noted that the fundraiser is definitely growing.


Last year, nearly 1,200 walkers turned out and raised $90,000 for families in need.


The family-friendly event features a 5K walk (about 3.1 miles) to bring attention to the condition of Orange County residents living below the poverty level. The event will also raise funds that will be invested in local programs that assist families in crisis and help provide them with basic necessities, such as food, lodging and medical care.


Apart from the main event, participants and attendees will enjoy a variety of fun activities throughout the day. A free Kid-At-Heart Zone is open to the young (and the young at heart), featuring a rock-climbing wall, sports bouncer and batting cage. Live music from six local bands will keep the energy high, with cool tunes from Adam’s Attic, Alterego, Ocutones, Blackhawks, Give Up The Girl, and Christa Mae and the Brigade.




Refreshments will be available from a growing list of Orange County’s most popular food trucks, including Go Country 105 Chuck Wagon, Crepes Bonaparte, Barcelona On The Go, Bacon MANia, The OC Food Truck, Tropical Shave Ice and Dos Chinos.
