Virtual Walk: Fun Activities!

A Fun, Significant Day to Empower the Materially Poor

Looking for FUN activities tied to our 2020 Virtual Walk? You’re in the right place!

Whether you’re a poet, photographer, artist, or just like a good scavenger hunt, there’s a fun activity for you associated with our 2020 Virtual Walk for Economic Empowerment! Check out the details below and then plan to join us for our Zoom Walk Meetup on Saturday, June 6, at 10 am Boston time. If you are a registered Walker, we will email you the Zoom link the week before the June 6 Walk day. Take plenty of pictures during the Walk and we’ll include a link to upload them to a common Walk Google Photo folder.

Thank you for not only empowering the materially poor by helping raise $125,000+ to support our Coronavirus Response Fund, but by having lots of kingdom fun while doing it! May God bless you as you share His heart for others.
