GIVING HOPE TO THE HOMELESS
Every year, thousands of men, women and children come to Union Gospel Mission for meals, shelter, recovery services and life-changing care.
Walk for Hope & Fun Run supports UGM's work of GIVING HOPE TO THE HOMELESS. A big thank-you to our sponsors for making the event possible!
You can help! Walk, run, volunteer and/or promote: Participate by yourself or get a group of your friends to join the cause. For more information, click REGISTER.
When you register, you can also set up a webpage to help you compete for our "walking man" trophy, which will spend the next year with the top fundraising team or individual. Kudos to last year's winning team, Pinnacle Physical Therapy!
Don't forget to promote your fundraising page on social media! Recommended hashtags: #w4h2016, #hope365
The 3.2-mile route (about a 5k) begins at UGM’s Men’s Mission in downtown Salem, loops around Wallace Marine Park and ends at the Riverfront Park Pavilion. Click here for a map.
