Will be held on Sunday, October 8, starting at 2:00 p.m. from Saint Matthew Lutheran Church in Urbana. You can help out in a number of ways, by either walking the 10 km (~6 mi) walk (there will be shorter options as well for those who cannot or do not wish to complete the full walk), by sponsoring walkers, or by volunteering to staff a water / rest station along the route or as a crossing guard. Please contact the church office at 217-367-8357 if you would like to sign up to walk or to volunteer. If you would like to register online to walk or to donate, please go to https://goo.gl/vRDApW to find our team’s page.
Proceeds will be used by Church World Service for various direct hunger-relief and sanitation programs globally; 25% of the funds collected will stay in the area, going to the Wesley Food Pantry, Eastern Illinois Food Bank, and the Daily Bread Soup Kitchen.
