The Shamba Walk

  • Newport Harbor High School 600 Irvine Avenue Newport Beach, CA, 92663 United States (map)

The Shamba Way and Project Hope Alliance are partnering together for The Shamba Walk to bring hope to the more than 28,000 homeless kids in Orange County. Participants will sign up in teams of three and complete a relay that includes a one-mile farmer carry with additional obstacles located at various stations throughout the walk.  

Our goal is to help raise at least $10,000 for Project Hope Alliance by coming together as a community to help our community. Every level of fitness, age, and skill can make a difference.
