Memorial, New Year's walks to step off at St. Joseph's Halle

The Texas Volkssport Association will give walkers a chance to start 2014 on the right foot with two special walks on New Year’s Eve.

The Memorial Walk is scheduled for 11 a.m., Tuesday, Dec. 31 and is headquartered at St. Joseph’s Halle, located at 212 W. San Antonio St.

The Memorial Walk provides people with a chance to reflect on friends or family who have died during the past year. Anyone can start the trek between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., but all walkers must be finished and off the route by 5 p.m.

There is a 5K and 10K option for walkers. The routes will take volkssporters through residential paved streets, the old peanut factory and a cemetery.

The fee for all participants is $3. Donations to help defray costs are appreciated. IVV credit is available.
