SaddleBrooke Community Outreach conducts its 12th-annual walk-a-thon on Saturday, Oct. 18.

The 8 a.m. walk-a-thon, the outreach’s “most popular annual event,” helps raise money for a number of causes supported by the non-profit group.

This year’s theme is “Reaching for the Stars.” A year ago, nearly 400 people participated.

It is two walks, one about 1.5 miles, the other three miles, beginning and ending at the MountainView Clubhouse, 38759 S. MountainView Blvd., in SaddleBrooke.

It ends with breakfast and awards.

SaddleBrooke Community Outreach “is dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of schoolchildren in our neighboring communities through improved self-respect, better school attendance and higher scholastic achievement,” a release said.

Last year, funds were used to provide clothing for more than 3,800 children, tutor nearly 1,000 students and award college scholarships.

Mary Kay Stein is SaddleBrooke Community Outreach’s vice president for special events.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
