On January 5, 2013, a series of BEYOND events will be held throughout Pima County to remember those who lost their lives in the January 8, 2011 shootings, as well as those whose lives have been changed forever. BEYOND was launched by the Zimmerman family in honor of their son Gabe Zimmerman, who lost his life that day.
The Town of Oro Valley will participate in BEYOND by hosting two family-friendly hikes in Catalina State Park on Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 8:30 a.m. Hikers may choose from the Canyon Loop Trail (3-mile loop) or the Sutherland Trail to Sutherland Wash (5.2 miles round-trip). Both hikes have minimal elevation gain. Participants should meet at the Chase Bank parking lot across from the Catalina State Park entrance to receive a wristband good for discounted admission into the park.
