The Story

EVENT DATE: Apr 08, 2017

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Apr 08, 2017

Concern America's 20th Annual Walk Out of Poverty supports health, clean water, and education for impoverished areas in Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, and Mozambique. Walk with us and make a difference in our global community.

  1. Register: Registration is $35. (Children 5 and under walk for free, but must still register!) T-shirts will be available first come first serve.
  2. Set a Goal: As a team or individual, choose an amount to fundraise! Any amount counts: $100 provides a person with clean water for 25 years; $1000 enables full medical training for a village health care provider.  
  3. Fundraise: Outreach to family members, coworkers, schoolmates, and more to give through your online page or by checks and cash (which can be turned in the morning of the walk or mailed to Concern America). We encourage every walker to raise at least $100.
  4. Join Us to Walk: The event takes place on Saturday, April 8.  Arrive at 6:45 am at Holy Spirit Church in Fountain Valley. Check in, get a snack, and pick up your t-shirt!  We begin the five-mile walk at 7:30 am.
