Global Care-A-Thon Walk
This will take place on June 18, 2016. The walk generally starts at 8:30 and consists of a 6 km walk in Heimdal, Alberta beginning at Heimdal Church and ending at Cloverlawn Community Hall. Lunch and a program takes place after the walk. A “Celebration Dinner” where care-a-thon and field reports are presented will take place October 15 in Wetaskiwin at Calvary Baptist Church.
Through this effort, over 300 children are fed each day in rural Mozambique. Many of these children, who would otherwise suffer severe malnutrition, enjoy a balanced meal each day with the added benefit of attending school.In this event, participants raise funds through their network of friends, neighbors and relatives, who sponsor them to take a 6 km walk.
This walk is held annually in June in the small community of Heimdahl, Alberta (40 km southeast of Edmonton), Canada. Signs are posted along the route with scripture verses that remind the walkers of the purpose for their dedication, such as, “I was hungry and you fed me.” A police vehicle patrols the highway to ensure safety for the walkers, and those who are unable to complete the walk are offered rides from other volunteers.
The walk celebrates new participants every year, but has a solid core group who has faithfully walked in every event. Walkers range in age and athletic ability from very young children walking with their parents to seniors with walking canes whose pace is slower. Regardless of the participant’s age or possible physical challenge, these walkers know that their efforts each year continue to make feeding programs for hungry children overseas a reality.
