On Saturday, April 21, Circle of Hope will hold their 8th Annual 5k Walk and People's Choice Car show at Castaic Lake. From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., participants may walk as a team, with family members or even canine friends in this non-competitive fundraiser benefiting Santa Clarita Valley breast cancer patients.
Now to the event this year are title sponsors The Walking Company and Big Dog Sportswear and Galpin Ford will sponsor an early morning car rally prior to the walk. Participants can enjoy looking at all the classically restored vehicles in the People's Choice Car Show along the 5K route, and will be able to cast their votes for their favorite vehicles.

The school who raises the most money will also win a Walk for Hope Perpetual Trophy to display at their school for the year.
