25TH ANNIVERSARY PHOTO GALLERY



On December 6, 1986, the club, then known as the Tucson German Heritage Volkssport Klub, hosted its first event. It was a 10 km. walk starting at St. Phillips in the Hills Church in northern Tucson. Twenty-five years later, on December 3, 2012, and as its 125th event, the club recreated the exact same walk and again starting at St. Phillips. Here is a gallery of photos from this 25th anniversary event.
