The Hope Mission will be walking in unity to raise support for the homeless in Edmonton. They will start and finish at Hope Mission, their headquarters for stories, activities, food, and a place of warmth.

When: Saturday, February 17th, 2018. 

Where: 9908 106 Ave. Beginning at Hope Mission, you will walk 2 and/or 5 km through Edmonton’s downtown core.

Why: The walk is in support of all the men, women and children who are cold and hungry this season, and through your support, to bring them hot meals and care.

As well as looking for participants, they also need people to volunteer at the event. Following is a description of available jobs:

Registration Team (2:50 pm – 6:00 pm) – Volunteers will be responsible for registering the walkers as they come in. This includes processing waivers, cheques, and cash. We also need 6 volunteers who are willing to stay and count money until about 8 pm. If you are interested in this portion, please let me know! This position is indoors.

Rest Stop Hosts (4 pm – 8 pm) – Volunteers are responsible for greeting and welcoming walkers at one of our rest stops. This position may be indoors or outdoors.

Route Marshalls (4 pm – 8 pm) – Volunteers are the guide to our walkers! You will be paired with another person and positioned at a point on the route to show the walkers where to walk. This is an outdoor position, so dress warm.

If you would like to participate in the walk: Their goal is an ambitious $20,000! To accomplish this goal they’re looking for 20 team captains (of any age) who will recruit 6-8 friends to their team, with a goal of raising $1000 per team. Individuals can also choose to join an existing team that needs support.

Come and walk or volunteer to support our neighbours.

When you sign up please indicate in the comments which job you would like to do, or if you would like to participate in the walk.

Cheers,
