All proceeds from the event benefit its no-cost, school-based counseling program. Through this program, each Burbank Unified School District campus has a counselor on-site during school hours.

The Family Service Agency of Burbank addresses the social, emotional and mental health of the community. By participating in the Walk, people can help the FSAB provide no-cost clinical and psycho-educational care for Burbank’s youth. Directly, the child is positively affected by the counseling. Indirectly, families, teachers, school administrators, peers and the community-at-large are affected.

This year, the CareWalk is dedicated to Jeri Buliavac. She is a long time resident and a hairstylist in Burbank. As she battles her personal journey to fight her cancer, she unselfishly continues to be an active supporter and friend to FSAB, “Where No One Walks Alone.”

Registration is now available and people can register as an individual, team and/or sponsor. Kids, adults and seniors can participate.
