From the American Liver Foundation website, and prior to the May 11, 2013 walk:

Moving forward…to a future free of liver disease. That is the goal the volunteers and staff of the American Liver Foundation® work toward every day. You can join them and make a difference as a participant in the Liver Life Walk®. Your participation will keep us moving forward in the fight against one of America’s fastest growing public health concerns — liver disease.

Take part in this scenic 5k or 1.5k through the world famous San Diego Zoo!  The entire walk is within the Zoo’s grounds and registered participants will get readmission to the Zoo for the rest of the day!  The walk starts at the North side of the Zoo’s main parking lot on the lawn of the War Memorial Building.  Walkers and runners will then cross the parking lot and enter the Zoo’s special events gate where they can enjoy a 1.5k flat route or the scenic 5k route through the Zoo!  The finish line is back on the War Memorial lawn where participants will enojoy a celebration with music and fun!
