Teams are forming and pledges are being gathered for the HONOR Walk for Reform, an awareness and fund raising event for Hepatitis Outbreaks' National Organization for Reform.
Woodcliff Restaurant just off Highway 77 will host the Oct. 9 event. Registration starts at 12:30 p.m. and the walk around the lake will begin an hour later.
There will be prizes for teams that raise the most money, including the grand prize of a quilt made by the late Marian McCluskey, a longtime elementary teacher in Oakland. The quilt was hand-pieced and hand-quilted. It was donated in McCluskey's honor by her daughter.
Funds from the HONOR Walk will go directly to programs and efforts by HONOReform, a national advocacy organization dedicated to protecting patients through safeguarding medical injections.
The organization was formed after 99 people were affected by a hepatitis outbreak at a Fremont clinic in 2002.
