Dresden organizers say there is also the ‘Night Before Club’ available on Saturday, September 14. People can register in the Legion hall at 7 p.m. and travel the casual unmarked route.

“Great alternative for folks that are not available on Sunday or those that prefer an evening walk,” Dresden organizers said on social media.

Last year Dresden raised $35,515.96 for cancer research, the second most money per ca pita in the entire province.
