WAT22 is honored to have been chosen as the nonprofit partner for the 3rd annual Yadaloo Music & Arts Festival that will be held on the banks of the Arkansas River in North Little Rock on Saturday, September 18, 2021. This will be our biggest fund raiser of the year! Check out all the ways below that you can participate in this event while further supporting our mission.
5k Memorial Ruck March
The festival will be kicked off with a We Are The 22 5K Memorial Ruck March in honor of every veteran and soldier lost to suicide. Ruck march participants are encouraged to fill their packs with nonperishable food items to be donated at the end of the march to Feed The Veterans and Veteran Villages of America. These organizations provide food for hungry veterans and were greatly impacted by the pandemic. The ruck march will end at the festival entrance and will have circled North Little Rock and Little Rock. 100% of the proceeds for the 5k Memorial Ruck March will go directly to WAT22. Tickets to march are $35 and will include entry to the festival for those who march.
Becoming a sponsor is a great marketing opportunity that also supports our mission. As a Gold, Silver, and Bronze sponsors your organization’s logo will be on our website and our official event t-shirt. Gold sponsors will also have the opportunity to set up a vendor table in the WAT22 area of the festival.
