For everyone that wishes to enjoy a wide range of Community Events, Skagway has it all. Throughout the year our small community (population 1036 in 2014 census estimate) puts on a host of events with the help of many Skagway volunteers!
Annual Fran DeLisle Cancer Awareness Walkathon
An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day first of June, repeating indefinitely
This beautiful walk follows the Dyea road along the scenic Taiya Inlet, through spruce forest to historic downtown Skagway. Volunteer staffed stations provide aid and treats along the way. There is also a half walk, starting in Long Bay. $20 entry fee includes shirt and lunch.
All money raised by the walk provides cancer screenings and aid to Skagway residents diagnosed with cancer.
Sponsored by the Skagway Eagles Auxillary #25 and the Emblem Club.
