What an incredible day, what an incredible walk, and thank the Lord, without rain ! Team Advent was undaunted, and we hit the streets at 9am for the 51st Walk for Hunger. This year, the Briggs Kiernan Family, Robert Braman, Tyson Miller and Lorraine Henderson completed the 20 miles, Nola Sheffer and Abigail & Alister Lewis Bowen completed 10 miles - an all time best !
The other great news is we are close to reaching our Team Goal of $10K . Surprisingly, almost 50 % of donations so far have come from friends and family outside of our Advent family. Our small team of walkers have worked hard rallying donations but now need our Advent Family to support us for the final push ! It will make our sore legs and feet all the more worthwhile when we reach the $10K goal.
Thank you to all our parishioners who have already donated ... to those who have not, please consider a small but important donation now !
Your donations to Project Bread's mission and our Community Dinners will always be why we do the Walk. We talked about this mission and how important it is as we walked.
Thank you all so much for your support,
The Briggs - Kiernan Family, Rob Braman, Lorraine Henderson & Tyson Miller, Nola Sheffer, The Lewis Bowens and the Farnan Murphy Family.
