Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if it rains?
The Heart Walk is a RAIN or SHINE event. However, in the case of severe weather, we will cancel.  If this is the case, we will update our Walk homepage on or before the morning of the event.

Where do I park?
On-street (metered) parking is available and free of charge on weekends around the McGrath Amphitheatre in downtown Cedar Rapids. Parking can also be found in nearby off-street lots and parking ramps.

How long is the walk route? 
The walk route is approximately 3 miles thru the downtown Cedar Rapids district, along the Cedar Valley Trail and through historic Czech Village. There will be a shorter 1 mile route available for participants who choose not to walk the complete route. 

Are pets, strollers, bicycles and skates allowed on walk day?
Well-behaved dogs are welcome, but must be leashed at all times. We do allow strollers, but for everyone’s safety, we discourage skateboards, bicycles and wheelie footwear. 

Where will walk day photos be posted?
Following the event, we will post a link on our Facebook page to share all of the Heart Walk day photos with you.
