2015 Walk to REbeL
May 9, 2015
Thanks to those who have registered! Please read these FAQs about the walk!
Get ready to be a part of the 5th Annual Walk to REbeL! Join us for a fun-filled morning where you can:
- Get some exercise
- Feed your body
- Tell us what you LOVE about yourself in the photo booth
- Make something cool in the Lil’ Rebels Kid Zone
- Bring your well-behaved, calm, and on-a-leash dogs to strut their stuff with you
- Shop from a variety of vendors in the Perfectly You Plaza
- Win a prize, and . . .
- Become empowered to stage your own RebeLution!
The walk is our largest annual fundraiser and provides critical monetary support for our mission. Whether you participate in the walk, join a team, support an individual or a team with a donation, sponsor the event, or share our event on social media, you will have an impact on our success!
Walk with us to REbeL against…
- Society’s unrealistic standards of beauty.
- Advertisements that lower your self-esteem and make you feel “not good enough.”
- The photo-shopped and digitally-enhanced pictures you see in the media that make you feel “less than.”
- Any form of bullying.
- The diet mentality and the practice of making your appearance more important than your health.
- Negative body image and body discrimination.
- Being anyone but your beauty-full self.

Teams and Individual Fundraising
Gather your crew, gang, clan, BFF’s, and join the REbeLution to “Be The Change.” We hope you will be inspired to show everyone your crazy and confident selves, and have some fun with costumes, team names, etc. In addition, we also hope that your group will be inspired to do some individual and team fundraising to benefit REbeL, and at the same time you can win some AWESOME PRIZES! Don’t have a team you can join?? Never fear . . . you can fundraise as an individual and still receive the same rewards!

Wondering about the walk…
What do I do with money that I collected as an individual or as part of a team?
Please plan to bring all funds collected with you the day of the event. You can turn in all funds at the Registration tent. Once you have done this, you can head over to the Fundraising Prizes tent to pick up any prizes you have earned. Raising as little as $100 earns you some cool prizes!
Where do I park?
There will be free parking available in the Blue Valley Northwest High School parking lot.
Will there be any food or drink available?
REbeL is pleased to have wonderful donors that support the Walk to REbeL. Thank you to our generous supporters, there will be complimentary food and drink provided by multiple businesses including Treat America, and Chick-fil-A. In addition, there will be a water stop along the route.
What will there be to do?
We will have the following: Food, Whiteboard Photos, Lil’ REbeL Kids Zone, Face Painting, PhotoBus, REbeL Information, Pup Tent, Dancing, Dunk Tank, visit the vendors in the Perfectly You Plaza, participate in our raffle, the opportunity to purchase REbeL gear, and best of all have a happy, healthy time!
What happens if it rains?
We walk rain or shine!!
If there is lightning, or the weather is too severe to safely walk, we will have a party inside BVNW with all of the fun REbeL event activities going on where it is safe and dry. We will update the website if there are any event changes. Plan to come out to join the REbeLution no matter the weather!
Can I bring my furry friend?
Yes, well-behaved dogs, on leashes, are welcome. If you choose to bring your dog, please make sure your dog can handle the social aspects of a crowded environment. We are thankful to Overland Park Veterinary Center for providing our Pup Tent with first aid for pets, doggie snacks and waste collection bags!
Can I ride a bike, scooter, roller skates, or a skateboard?
No. To ensure the safety of our participants, we allow walkers or runners only. Strollers and wheelchairs are welcome.
What if I can’t walk this year but I still want to support the Walk to REbeL?
