The 4th Annual They Shall Walk and Roll-a-thon to benefit the They Shall Walk organization will be held on Saturday, October 30 on the Interurban Trail in Shoreline.

They Shall Walk is working to create robotic suits for the severely disabled which would allow them to be upright and walk unassisted. The organization started in Shoreline but recently moved to larger quarters in south Seattle. They still have a strong connection to Shoreline and hold their annual fund-raiser on the Interurban Trail through Shoreline.

Businesses and organizations register for tables, which are set up in the Sears parking lot and along the Trail.

Participants register to walk the Trail; suggestion donation is $25. Registration fees and t-shirt sales, as well as out-right donations, add to the fund. The walkers - and rollers - start at Sears at 9 am for a costume contest, car show, and live music. They head out on the Trail and 10 am, walk as far as they want to, and return to Sears.

Organizer Monty Reed says that everyone is welcome, whether walking or not. Diva espresso is giving away coffee and pastries to everyone and Ivar's Clam Chowder is provided free for the first 500 people. There will be drawings for prizes, with the grand prize being a Ford Hybrid.
