The event will be at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 301 E. Lopez Ave., on Saturday.
Registration for the Human Bean Fun Walk begins at 8 a.m. with a $25 registration fee.
The walk, which is for everyone, begins at 9 a.m. and will be followed at the church by a health fair.
People are invited to sponsor a walker or join the walkers on an easy 1- to 2-mile course starting and ending at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church.
Prizes will be awarded for best beanie (hat), most pledges earned, spirit award and for being in the middle of the pack.
Local medical providers will share their knowledge in an informal setting at the church from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
In conjunction with the health fair, an art show of Allison Ormsby’s work will be on display at Karon’s Frame Center, 625 E. Front St., from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. today.
Ormsby, a longtime Mosaic member, died three years ago after discovering she had stage 4 breast cancer.
One of her paintings was used to render the new Mosaic logo.
Created by April Larson, the heart motif represents the Mosaic motto, “A Community with Heart Includes Everyone.”
The art exhibit continues through October in celebration of Ormsby and to raise awareness about breast cancer and developmental disabilities.
Mosaic is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that educates, empowers and enriches the lives of adults with developmental disabilities in Clallam County.
Formerly known as Special Needs Advocacy Parents — or SNAP — the organization changed its name after the state’s food stamp program changed its name to SNAP last year, according to program Director Bonne Smith.
There was other confusion as well, she said.
“People thought it was the parents with special needs,” Smith said.
To participate in this inaugural event, phone Mosaic at 360-681-8642 or email Lisa Petrisin, health fair chairwoman, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
