We understand traveling to Schenectady or East Meadow, NY is not feasible for all interested Walk-N-Roll participants. Therefore, we have implemented the "Walk Your Way" ticket and "Hot Spots" or locations for virtual participants to visit and connect with other local families participating.

Walk Your Way: You can participate virtually by walking or rolling in your neighborhood to raise awareness for Spina Bifida. Virtual participants are still eligible for our fundraising contests, and prizes and to receive our Walk-N-Roll T-Shirt.

Hot Spots:

  • Participants can request to be an ambassador for a hot spot location by emailing
  • A mutually agreed upon location will be added to the "hot spot" list and shared with our virtual attendees
  • On a selected day between 5/13/23-5/21/23, attendees can visit their "hot spot" location and complete their own Walk-N-Roll

To learn more, email or call 518-399-9151
