The 2nd Annual Mitchell Thorp Walkathon was a big success with approximately 700 people coming out in person to show their support, with others sponsoring participants or making donations. You've helped raise nearly $40,000 which will help ease the financial burden placed upon the MTF families. Event highlights included three of the five families assisted last year presenting heart felt talks on how the Foundation has helped them in so many ways. Jacob and Lucy Wallis where present while their son Izaiah is in the hospital recovering from being hit by an SUV. Carlsbad's new Mayor Matt Hall and the entire City of Carlsbad Council-Keith Blackburn, Ann Kulchin, Mark Packard, Farrah Douglas -attended-most walked. The Police Association and Firefighter's Association attended and cooked hot dogs with all proceeds donated to the Mitchell Thorp Foundation (MTF). Raffle prizes representing a huge cross section of area businesses donated gift cards, prizes and in kind services. Make sure to check out our Sponsor's page. BJ's Restaurant donated pizza to all finishers; DJ Chris Lord kept the walkers pace upbeat to his lively music and Finding Autumn band provided walkathon course entertainment.
