15th Annual Good Works Walk
February 18, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pmFree
The Good Works Walk is for adults and children of all ages. This year, five different interactive experiences have been developed to creatively inspire and inform participants about the problems people without homes face, and issues of poverty in rural Appalachian Ohio. Each Walk will travel to different parts of the city of Athens for engaging experiences. We even create a route each year for individuals who find it difficult to walk far distances. Though this is a fundraising event, we do encourage participation regardless of funds raised. There is no registration cost.
The Timothy House is the only shelter for people experiencing homelessness in eight counties and the goal of the Walk is to raise 1/3 of the total funding needed for the Timothy House ($60,000) for 2017. The Timothy House has provided more than 110,000 nights of shelter since 1981. January 1st marked Good Works 36th year of providing shelter to the rural homeless. People interested in supporting The Walk are encouraged to visit www.goodworkswalk.net or call 740.594.3339 to obtain further information on getting Walk sponsor packets.
We hope you will walk with us Saturday, February 18!
