Our 1.25-mile route will begin and end at the St. Mary Church parking lot, follow sidewalks along Fourth St., Lincoln Hwy. and First St., and not require crossing any busy streets.
All the funds raised through this Walk will directly benefit local individuals and families who are struggling. Our Society of St. Vincent de Paul St. Mary/Christ The Teacher Conference was established in 2004 to reach out to and assist our neighbors-in-need. This Friends of the Poor Walk is held to bring increased awareness to the local issues surrounding systemic poverty in our community.
