Help the Homeless Mini Walk - September 29, 2013

It's that time of year again!   CUMC will again host our own Help-the-Homeless Mini-walk to support the Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network (A-SPAN).  This year's walk will take place on September 29, 2013, at 12:30 P.M.  We will meet in the Fellowship Hall.  

A-SPAN serves single homeless adults all over Arlington with everything from nightly meals on the street, showers and laundry, to employment & housing case management, eviction prevention services and permanent supportive housing for the chronically homeless.  A-SPAN is also our dedicated partner in the Friday morning drop-in shelter that is run and supported by Central.  By walking on behalf of A-SPAN, we will raise awareness and funds for their programs, and we’ll have a great time doing it!  

It’s easy to walk and help our neighbors in need.  This year, those who wish to participate in the walk are encouraged to register online at fees go to benefit A-SPAN and everyone who registers to walk gets a Walkathon t-shirt. For youth walkers (ages 25 and younger) the fee is $20. For adults (26 years and older) the fee is $30.  A-SPAN staff will also be assisting with online registration the day of the walk. 

If you cannot be with us in person on the 29th but would like to support A-SPAN, never fear, you can still register at the link provided and your donation will count towards A-SPAN's registration goal.
