2015 Strides of Hope

Place: Shoaff Park, Conklin Pavilion
Time: Registration begins @ 8:30 AM
9:30 AM - Walkers leave start line (No timed run this year)
In order to sustain unparalleled growth in services for our community, the ministry support base is challenged to grow. Attending the Walkathon is an easy way to help. You will be asked to fill out a registration form (online or use a printed form) and enlist sponsors to give a one-time financial contribution. Strides of Hope participants say it is not difficult to invite friends to be sponsors when they have a chance to tell about all the life-affirming services A Hope Center provides.
To participate using Fundeasy Online Fundraising Page:
Click on the Fundeasy Online Page link and register online to raise sponsor pledges. You will be able to create a personal fundraising web page that's fun and easy to use. Your page includes our mission statement, a fund meter, and target goal amount (you can change target goal if you desire). An email link allows you to invite all your friends & family to sponsor your participation. You can also spread the word via social networks like Facebook & Twitter. Online sponsors will receive a tax-receipt at time of donation or they can choose to be sent a pledge reminder following the event. You can also add sponsors to your fundraising web page who do not use the Internet just by "logging in" to your web page and entering their name, address and pledge amount.
Pre-register your group
Do you have a youth group, Bible study group, Sunday school class, or other group that would enjoy participating in the walkathon together?
