SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Stater Bros.

"Last year's turnout was amazing with 1,700 walkers, and this year we are expecting to have even more supporters," said Nancy Varner, Co-Founder of Inland Women Fighting Cancer Committee. "It's so exciting to see how all aspects of the community have come together for one cause, to fight cancer."

The Walk will begin in Redlands, California at 5th and State Streets, where a few of the downtown shops will be open and ready for business. More than 300 community volunteers will gather at Tartan Restaurant at 6 a.m. to receive coffee, muffins and instructions. Registration opens at 7 a.m. with an expected turnout of more than 4,000 walkers, more than doubling last year's event. Volunteers from the San Bernardino Humane Society will host the "Bark and Believe" booth to check-in all of the dogs participating in the event. Owners will have the opportunity to get their pictures taken with the Legendary Lassie.

"This small town event has evolved into a community celebration," said Jack H. Brown, Chairman and CEO of Stater Bros. Markets. "Everyone is affected by cancer at some point in their lives and it's amazing to see how our community, the Inland Empire, has stepped up to the plate to do something about it."

Over the past month, Arrowhead Credit Union hosted a fundraising campaign inside their branches raising more than $10,000 for the Walk and recruiting nearly 160 Walkers. This is just one of the 50 teams that will be present on Sunday.

Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf located in downtown Redlands will hand out free coffee and $5 gift cards to the early birds while Cheer Squads from the local area will be on the route to raise the spirit level and encourage the walkers as they make the trek to the finish line at the Redlands Bowl.

Participants will have the opportunity to do either a 5K or 10K route that was created by the local business ESRI. Walkers taking the extended 10K route will have the benefit of walking through the University of Redlands campus where they will be greeted by the U of R's Jazz Band and service clubs.

At the end of the walk, participants will celebrate at the Believe Bash located at the Redlands Bowl where the local fast food chain, Baker's Drive-Thru has donated Chicken Sandwiches to the first 2,000 walkers. More than 40 vendors will be at the Bash to hand out free items to the participants. In addition, this year a Kids Zone will be offered with face painters, balloon makers and a large slide for the kids. A memorial area called the Tree of Life has also been designated to honor loved ones lost to cancer.

Last year, Stater Bros. established Stater Bros. Charities, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The purpose of Stater Bros. Charities is to give back to the communities Stater Bros. Markets is privileged to serve. In 2008, Stater Bros. Charities donated $1.4 million to local causes. With an emphasis on programs that benefit hunger relief, children's welfare, education for both youth and adults, services for the elderly and care for our Nation's Veterans, Stater Bros. Charities will be able to help with some of the most critical needs facing this region.
