Fannie Mae Walk for the Homeless 2012

Come and join us tomorrow. I am offering the Opening Prayer and YES, I am walking, too!

If you cannot walk you can follow the link and donate for yourself or under the name of a walker, like me!

You can register online ahead of time for Catholic Charities at http://www.catholiccharitiesdc.org/hth

We can now encourage everyone to register early – that way 100% of the donation goes to Catholic Charities.

But everyone who comes to register at the park will be very welcome and appreciated! And it’s a joint fund-raiser – so all three organizations (Catholic Charities, Community Crisis and United Communities Against Poverty) will share those registrations and funds.

Registration on site begins at 9:30 AM (Allen Pond Park, Bowie, MD).

First 300 kids get free basketballs.
