Help the Homeless Mini Walk - Sunday October 25
For the last few years, AMEN has held a Help the Homeless Mini walk which is sponsored by Fannie Mae. This walk is a very important fundraiser for AMEN programs. The Help the Homeless (HTH) Program gives AMEN all of the registration fees PLUS additional financial incentives based on the numbers of AMEN registered walkers.
This year's walk will be held on Sunday, October 25, starting registration at 2:00 PM, we will meet in the parking lot of the First Presbyterian Church, 601 N. Vermont Street (corner of Carlin Springs Road, one block of Glebe Road in Ballston). After the registation, there will be a short walk around the neighborhood. The fee is $15 per child and $25 per adult over 25. Each registered walker will receive a Free T-shirt. We plan to be finished by 3 PM.
This min-walk is managable for tots to grandparents. So if you are not running the Marine Marathon on Sunday October 25, but would like to get some exercise for a very good cause, put on your sneakers, gather up family, friends, a Scout troop or youth group, a sport team or any other group, and join AMEN in getting a good start on helping our Arlington neighbors in need.
Rain or shine, we will be here hoping to see you!
