On August 3rd, we walked for Mary, Tauzen, and Safari. We walked for a nation. We walked for HOPE. Thank you to Mountainbrook Community Church for hosting our inaugural Walk for Hope in August! It was a success, with over 75 registered participants, many local volunteers, and media coverage from our local television station, KSBY! We were thrilled to see many different teams formed, from small church groups as well as local businesses. Participants walked either 1 or 5 miles, and were able to experience pumping their own water! Along the way, they also interacted with stations displaying the successful holistic solutions that SoHIP has implemented to reverse the cycle of poverty and create healthy homes in Africa. This interactive experience educated and inspired volunteers and participants alike. It was encouraging to see so many people excited about the difference that SoHIP is making in Africa!
Don’t Miss the Next One!
We are excited about our upcoming Walk for Hope on October 12, 2013 at Laguna Lake Park in San Luis Obispo! This beautiful park creates a perfect venue as the trail begins alo00 ngside the lake, where participants will collect water to carry the rest of the route. The trail will end with a display of Action Steps—ways in which community members can get involved and help SoHIP reverse poverty. We are also excited to be offering entertainment from the Bucket Busters drum circle, and team prizes!
We welcome the whole San Luis Obispo community. We hope you can join—it’s not too late to sign up! Register to walk or volunteer at the event at www.sohip.org/walkforhope.
