We have two big days each year to raise funds to empower the materially poor, and the Walk is the first of these two days.
Our 2021 Walk biggest day was on Saturday, June 5, 2021 and, given the coronavirus pandemic, was a Hybrid Walk – some walked alone (or with friends they invited) and some gathered in small groups of 10-20 walkers. The Walks and crowdfunding continue through September 6, 2021, so you still have time to join in! Our goal is to raise $150,000+ – 100% of which will go to empower the materially poor around the world. Given our global PEER family, folks just like you will be walking on many continents!
Our Walk for Global Empowerment started in 2006 and has raised $849,000 since then. That means if we can just surpass this year’s $150,000 goal, we will have raised $1 million through the Walk! Every year we typically have at least 150 walkers join us walking around 3 miles – at just over 2,000 steps per mile, that gets us to a million steps! So, our Walk theme this year is “A Million Steps to a Million Dollars”.
