Our most important duty was to watch for any participants having a medical issue. If something happened, we were to notify the amateur shadowing the St. Johns Ambulance volunteers, who would make a decision. Fortunately, there were no medical or other problems encountered.

Two police horses were to lead the walk. However, they proved so popular for photos that many wanted their picture taken with them. As a result, the horses were fifteen to twenty minutes late.
