Walkers must register for the event and make a minimum donation: $25 per adult and $5 per child, ages 2 - 14. Children under 2 are free. Walk registration includes same-day admission to the Detroit Zoo.
Additional fundraising is encouraged, and each walker gets his/her own fundraising page to share with friends and family. T-shirts will be given to each walker raising at least $50 and those raising $100 or more will receive a T-shirt and four tickets to attend this year’s Zoo Boo.Team registrations are available, and fundraising totals can be tracked online.
This year’s walk will look different than previous years, with the highest importance placed on the health and safety of our supporters. Therefore, registration will be limited to the first 1,500 registrants to ensure social distancing.
