A group of us in Wooster and Wayne County are working on a Compassion International event to raise awareness (and money) about releasing children from extreme poverty.
The Step Up with Compassion fundraising walk series takes families on a journey of discovery to shed light on the reality of childhood poverty. We have scheduled it for 10 a.m. Oct. 31, 2015, at Oak Hill Park in Wooster.
The Wooster group, led by Ron and Jan Maxwell, will be among the first to present this Step Up walk. We are learning as we go. There is a sense of excitement because of a feeling that anything is possible. It’s never been done, so how can we mess up?
While it is exciting to be part of this, it is also a little scary. After all, it’s never been done. And, the reality is, where there is no margin, there is no mission. We need to raise money.
Wendi has started a team, Wendi’s Walkers. Please consider joining our team and making a donation to help release children from poverty through a Christ-centered program. You can find out more here.
We also have been talking to businesses for donations/gift cards/gift baskets for the day of the event, and they have been very responsive. But, we need individuals or businesses who are willing to Step Up and be sponsors of the event.
If you want to be a sponsor, then please contact me. Leave a comment for me to contact you or reach out to me on Facebook, Twitter, my cell phone or via text. Thanks for considering being a sponsor. If you are not in a position to be a sponsor, you can still pray we find some and that the event is successful. Thanks so much.
Here is a map of where the walk will be.
