“It was a wonderful event with a great turnout in support of the needy that was held in conjunction with the national SVdP walk on September 26,” said Carol, a SVdP member. “Last year’s nationwide event saw 25,000 walkers raise more than $2.6 million.”
The Friends of the Poor® Walk/Run began as a national program with the purpose of providing local SVdP Conferences and Councils the additional funds to help support their special works projects. Today, that philosophy continues, with Conferences and Councils using the funds from this event to help local people living in poverty.
“Proceeds from the event enabled SVdP Conferences and Councils to provide 11.5 million service hours to help almost 15 million people last year,” said Carol. “As Vincentians, the Friends of the Poor® Walk/Run is a sign of our solidarity with and support of the poor.”
