The walk will also bring together a team of local and national experts in advocacy and research to raise money and awareness, and to continue to help Central New Yorker’s fight against tick-borne diseases that can become debilitating.

Registration is underway with the event set for May 21st at 11 a.m. at Onondaga Lake Park. The first 150 walkers will receive a tip kit goodie bag that includes free repellent. To learn more and to sign up today, visit
