Walk Wisconsin kicked off on Saturday, with hundreds of participants from across the state.
The event included a full and half marathon, encompassing a path along the Wisconsin River and through the Green Trail. A smaller event was held for children.
The Stevens Point Fire Dept. was also on hand to offer activities for kids and families, including the department’s smoke house- which, using mock smoke teaches families how to escape from a burning structure- as well as a dunk tank and bounce house.
