The Childcare Network in Havelock has scheduled a Walk for Sandy Hook beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Havelock Recreation Center.

Activities will be held inside and outside of the recreation center, rain or shine.

Childcare Network staff and families will team with local firefighters and police officers for the walk around the mile-long trail at the Havelock Recreation Complex. Walkers will be split into seven groups that will walk the trail 26 times to represent the number of victims killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. For every lap, the fire and police will sound their alarms.

Those participating are asked to wear the Sandy Hook school colors of green and white. Snacks will be provided.

The free event is scheduled to conclude at noon.
