This walk will provide us the opportunity to practice conscientious compassion in our community. Together we’ll raise awareness on our local streets about the devastating effects of hunger and chronic malnutrition around the world and in our neighborhood. Our effort will raise funds to support sustainable projects to end hunger and malnutrition. The Buddha taught generosity, mindfulness, being in the company of spiritual friends and listening to inspiring talks as the way to heal and develop our mind. Come be with friends and fellow citizens as we walk to awaken awareness and compassion in our community.
Please bring snacks, a sun hat and a water bottle.
To increase our group’s visibility, please wear a white t-shirt or shirt to the Walk.
