2024 Sistercare Saturdays (Saturdays, July 27, August 24 and September 7) | 10 AM – 1 PM

Join us in downtown Columbia during the Soda City market to raise funds and bring awareness to this violence. We will have a dunking booth on both Saturdays, in which you can pay to dunk Mayor Rickenmann, as well as others throughout both events. There will also be multiple raffle drawings each Saturday, featuring supporting organizations/businesses, who have partnered with us to raise funds for Sistercare. In addition, there will be yard games for the whole family to enjoy and information booths from Sistercare, our local public safety partners and the City of Columbia.

The dunk tank tickets are $5 for three (3) throws, $10 for seven (7) throws and $30 for instant dunk.

Free registration will be open all summer for everyone who would like to sign up to participate in the walk on October 5:
