First Lutheran is teaming with other area churches and secular organizations to start a fundraising walk for hunger, The Coulee Region Hunger Walk. The Coulee Region Hunger Walk, Oct. 13, is a nonprofit dedicated to raise funds, raise awareness and end hunger among our neighbors.
Coulee Region Hunger Walk/Run is a 5K being held Oct. 13, starting at Myrick Park. This is meant to be a fun time for all with music, raffle and snacks available. We hope that First Lutheran will have at least 60 walkers. This is a fundraiser, with 35% going to The Hunger Task Force, 35% to WAFER Food Pantry and 30% to whatever nonprofit food organization you as the walker choose. That could be Lutheran World Hunger, Onalaska Food Pantry, a school district, etc. You can get pledges from family and friends, or make a donation yourself.
Registration begins at noon, runners start at 1pm, and walkers start immediately after the runners have left the starting line. Pledge forms/registration forms are available at First, or at couleeregionhungerwalk.org or on Facebook.
