History of the Walk
The Walk-a-Thon began in 1977 by a few parents of persons with disabilities. The Walk has been held in various locations over the years and has covered many miles! In 2007, we changed the name to the “Walk of Hope” in memory of our friend Jim Beers. Today, the Walk takes place in the Tremont neighborhood and is as much of a “friendraiser” as it is a fundraiser. 100% of the funds raised will benefit our community based programs and parish ministries for persons with disabilities, their loved ones and their supporters.
Some of these programs and ministries include Camp Happiness, Continuing Adult Education and Social Program, the many socials and activities for people with disabilities, referral support for families, special programs for the d/Deaf, hard of hearing, blind and mentally ill and many ministries which integrate persons with disabilities into Church and society. Your hope makes our services & ministries possible.
