On Saturday, the Talking Stick Learning Center will host an Inaugural 5k Walk event.

The family-friendly event, which is being co-hosted by the Awbury Arboretum, will feature face painting, food and drinks.

The Talking Stick Learning Center is a local non-profit that provides alternative education and group-learning experiences for home-schooled children between the ages of 4 and 16.

Proceeds from the walk ($5 in advance; $6 day-of) will go toward funding supplies and administrative costs for the Center.

The walk will begin at Awbury Arboretum, One Awbury Road, at 9 a.m. Saturday. (Rain date: Sunday.)

For more information about, or to sign-up to participate in, the walk, contact Christopher Mrozinski at (215) 654-0126 or visit talkingsticklearningcenter.org.
