All are asked to maintain safety and health guidelines. Walkers are encouraged to register in advance through the StepALIVE! website www.stepalivewalk.org. Individual walkers and teams can raise money through their fundraising pages. Make a tax-deductible donation in support of a walker or team, or to StepALIVE! in general. There will be prizes for the team with the most walkers and most money raised." As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, "Live music will be provided by the Alexandria Citizen Band for the pre-registration and kick off. The post-walk celebration will feature the StepALIVE! Bluegrass Band. Banjoman Frank Cassel will team up with Fred Nelson and Roger Williams (Three Boys Night Out band) and Ginger Beecher (Taste of Bluegrass band) to sing and pick traditional bluegrass music using banjo, guitar, mandolin, and acoustic bass fiddle.
