Lacey, Lizzie

The San Diego Walk for Darfur will take place in Balboa Park on Nov. 19 at 8:30 a.m.

All money raised will go to the International Medical Corp., which has been providing emergency medical services for residents of South and West Darfur since July 2004.

At least 200,000 people have been killed and 2.5 million forced to flee their homes in the Darfur region of western Sudan.

Participants will gather for a rally at the finish line and awards will be given out to honor individuals and teams who raise the most funds.

Rabbi Lee Bycel, humanitarian and International Medical Corps Senior Advisor for Global Strategy, will be the key-note speaker.

Walk registration starts at 7:30 a.m. There is a $23 fee. For more information call 858-535-1111 ext.3803.
