Why We Walk ArtPrize Sponsored by Wolverine Worldwide

Saturday, September 29, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

| Free

Wolverine Worldwide is committed to making the world a better place, it’s why we partner with Habitat for Humanity of Kent County, Family Promise of Grand Rapids and Western Michigan Center for Arts + Technology to aid in their impact on the West Michigan community.

The Why We Walk ArtPrize event allows participants to turn their ArtPrize experience into a donation for one of three local charities: Habitat for Humanity of Kent County, Family Promise of Grand Rapids or Western Michigan Center for Arts + Technology. Wolverine Worldwide will donate $50,000 but your steps will determine how much money each charity will receive – why we walk. Simply show us why you walk ArtPrize and for every one-mile you walk (or 2,000 steps), you will be given a token to vote for a charity. At the end of the day, the charity with the most votes will receive $25,000; the charity with the 2nd most votes will receive $15,000 and the charity with the 3rd most votes will receive $10,000. While you’re out walking and exploring ArtPrize and the local community use #WhyWeWalk for a chance to win gift baskets filed with Wolverine Worldwide brand product. At 5pm we’ll draw a random winner from all the #WhyWeWalk hashtag users; the more times you use #WhyWeWalk, the better the chances for winning the gift basket. All participants will be given a discount code to use on any Wolverine Worldwide brand product.

Before you head out on your ArtPrize experience, stop by the Wolverine Worldwide Why We Walk booth at Ah-Nab-Awen park on Saturday, September 29th between the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm (booth closes at 5pm). The booth will be located between the Blue Bridge and the Gerald R Ford Presidential Library and Museum. Simply give us your name, email address and current step count and you will receive a bracelet indicating you’re registered for Why We Walk. We’ll show you how to track your steps on your personal mobile device or personal fitness tracker. Don’t have either of these devices; we’ll have a limited quantity of pedometers for your use. Then head out and enjoy ArtPrize; just remember to check back into the Why We Walk booth and share your total number of steps taken and to vote for your charity of choice.
