Due to the exceedingly high cost of traffic control, we have decided to hold the entire event in one location. Therefore, the march will begin at Hawthorne Park and end at Hawthorne park.
We will begin by leaving the park and head towards E. Jackson St.
We'll turn left onto the Bear Creek Greenway.
Then we'll continue to the dog park and circle back around to the beginning for speakers and music on the stage.
Three food trucks will be parked at the event and there will be a non-perishable food drive to benefit Access in Medford.
