Find a Walk
The Smyrna Walk 4 Water was a great success on November 10th at Lee Victory Park. It was a beautiful fall day, but it was so cold that we changed the event from a Mache Pou Dlo (Walk for Water) to a Mache Pou Glas (Walk for Ice)! Despite the cold more than 60 people came and walked around the park to raise awareness and funds for clean water projects. More than $6000 was raised and efforts are ongoing. People came from the Highland Heights Church of Christ and the Smyrna Church of Christ. What a great way to get to know fellow Christians and support a good cause.
Walk4Water and "Day of Thanks and Giving" have become quite a pair at Burleson church of Christ over the last several years. For most of us, November is a month to reflect on what we are thankful for in our lives. At Burleson, the members spend the Saturday morning before the big day at church the next day focusing on something we all should be more thankful for each and every day. CLEAN WATER! The common theme throughout the weekend is being thankful for what you have and having the joy of giving to help others. So thank you Burleson!!!
Due to the devastating destruction caused by the wildfires the walk is being postponed. We want everyone to be able to focus on helping those individuals and families who are dealing with loss from the fire.
Any funds that have already been given to Walk4Water will remain credited to the Lodi Walk4Water. We are looking to reschedule in the earlier part of 2019. We look forward to seeing you then!
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this devastating disaster.
