"Walk-a-Mile" Event for the Rescue Mission (Sat, Feb 18)
Saturday, February 18, 2012 is the 7th Annual "Walk-a-Mile" event in Marion. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of homelessness in our community, and also to raise money for the Rescue Mission, which provides shelter, food, clothing, counseling, and educational opportunities to help people get back on their feet. The goal of the walk is to raise money, so walkers are asked to make a donation and/or solicit donations from family/friends/co-workers, but even if you aren't able to contribute money you can still join the walk to help raise awareness!
To register for the event, go to their website:
Phone: 765.662.0988 (Debra Ballard, Coordinator)
Registration deadline is Feb 13, 2012. The walk is Saturday, Feb 18 - check-in is at 9:15am and the walk starts at 10am. It starts and ends at the YMCA, there is hot chocolate and coffee served along the way and a free lunch served after the event. I've done this event the past two years with my family and will be doing it again this year - hope to see you there!
