Hello Walker/Supporter for the Brody Walk,
I am writing to let you know that due to the weather expected tomorrow, we must cancel the Brody walk and softball game Sunday. We are grateful you said yes to the walk and supporting Comedy Gives Back’s mental health programs and resources.
We will reschedule the walk and softball game, probably for May, in honor of Brody’s birthday (and cooler and better weather in the valley) and will reach out when we have a new date.
We will honor walkers for the new date or we can reimburse you. Reply to this email if you would like to be reimbursed.
With respect & gratitude,
(Jodi, Amber J, and Zoe)

The Brody Stevens Festival of Friendship 818 Walk and Softball Game is taking place on Sunday August 20th, 2023 in Reseda, California. You got it! The comedy community mourned the loss of Brody Stevens in 2019, and friends of Brody’s started the 818 Walk in honor of his memory for his fans and friends. Push! While the 2020 walk was canceled due to COVID, a second walk took place in 2021 & 2022 where his mural was unveiled. This year, the 818 Walk will directly benefit Comedy Gives Back, the organization dedicated to acting as a safety net for comedians in need of mental health services and addiction treatment. Yes!
Registration fee is $50 per participant ($60 day of), with proceeds directly benefiting Comedy Gives Back. Participants will also receive a special Brody gift bag. The walk itself is 1.5 miles around Reseda Park (18411 Victory Blvd, Reseda, CA 91335 in between pond and baseball field). Participants can sign up here. Believe!
