Catholic Charities Disability Services & Ministries celebrates its annual Walk of Hope on the first Saturday in October to benefit persons with disabilities. The walk helps raise awareness and funds for our programs and services that serve persons with disabilities and their families.
The walk begins at St. Augustine Church, located in Cleveland's historic Tremont neighborhood, across from Lincoln Park.
Registration begins at is at 8:30 a.m. followed by a 2-mile walk through the neighborhood that begins at 9:00 a.m. The walk is followed by a 10:30 a.m. raffle and a shorter walk around Lincoln Park at 11 a.m.
The walk includes great food, prizes and guest appearances by local celebrities. Register today to reserve your spot!
For more information about the upcoming Walk of Hope, please contact Marilyn Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org or (216) 334-2962.
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, the walk became known as 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 "friend-raiser" as it is a fundraiser. 100 percent of the funds raised will benefit our community-based programs and parish-based ministries for persons with disabilities, their loved ones and their supporters.
Some of these programs and ministries the walk supports include Camp Happiness, the Continuing Adult Education Program, the many socials and activities for people with disabilities, referral support for families, special programs for persons who are deaf or hard of hearing, blind and mentally ill, and many ministries that integrate persons with disabilities into Church and society.
Your hope makes our services and ministries possible.
