WALK-A-MILE IN MY SHOES 2021

A new year, a new adventure! Muncie Mission will expand one of Muncie’s biggest annual fundraising events into a virtual Walk-A-Mile in My Shoes WALK WEEK for 2021. From February 8-13, supporters are invited to take a solo walk… raising hope with every step!

Every day hurting neighbors take to the street… some searching for food, clothing, or other resources, others simply seeking an escape. Some don’t know why they walk, and most walk alone. For 16 years we have braved the cold to bring hope to our struggling neighbors… the hungry, the homeless, and those broken by addictions. This year COVID-19 has elevated anxieties, threatened jobs, disrupted routines, and pushed even more families to the brink of desperation. This year we are all sharing the burdens of loneliness and isolation.  They walk alone… and we walk alone!

Participants in WALK WEEK can fire up their treadmills, take a trek around the neighborhood, or challenge themselves to complete one or more featured outdoor route-of-the-day circuits between February 8 & 13. Walkers can stop at the Muncie Mission any day of WALK WEEK to drop off donations, pick up a      t-shirt, and snap a selfie with the Big Red Shoe.

The good news is everyone can take part– walk or support Hazelwood walkers with a donation to Hazelwood. Please write a separate check from your regular offering and be sure to write “Walk-A-Mile” in the memo line. You can register to walk or donation directly at munciemission.org/walk. Be sure to put down that you are walking for Hazelwood Christian Church!

 

New year blessings and thank you for your love and support.
