The 5th Annual Esther Borte Walk In the Park is coming to Toledo in February, this one is a bit different than the rest. The participants will still participate in the 5K walk, run, or roll. They just get to do it at their leisure.

The participants choose the date, time, and route of their race. You can track your race using the app of your choice, just take a screenshot and email it to

This year they are giving prizes to everyone who participates in the event. Send a photo of you competing in your best mask to be eligible for the costume prize as well. If you are doing the route by yourself, a mask is not required or with someone in your household but no more than what the new guidelines allow. If you sign up by January 31, you are guaranteed a T-shirt.

Raffle tickets for the quilt are available at the Toledo City hall or the website All money raised from the event will be used to refurbish the campsites.

This is an annual event that many in Toledo have enjoyed throughout the years. This may be a different process this year, but the results are the same. All money raised goes back into the community.
