Watch the video here! #Walk4GoodFood2020
The Walk Kickoff was yesterday- but you can watch the video above! We are so thankful for the many people who have joined us as walkers, donors, supporters, and more. Yesterday was a beautiful day to get started and we’re so thankful for all the positive reports of walking we’ve heard! Together, we have reached 75% of our $85,000 fundraising goal as of Monday morning. With your continued support we can get all the way there! Thank you for supporting Access and seven other local organizations who are working hard to ensure all people have access to good food.
You can view the full blessing “With Every Step Let Us Notice You” written for the opening kickoff by Margarita Solis-Deal, Access Board Member and Dominican Center at Marywood Director on our website. We encourage you to use this as a focus for your walk.
This morning (Monday) we started with Walk for Good Food Yoga with Nick from Flip Dog Yoga to get us ready to walk. Join us Live on Facebook (@AccessOfWestMichigan) on Wednesday, Friday, Sunday, and the following Tuesday (every other day) to join in at 7:30am; videos will also be available to stream anytime after they are posted.
Can you get involved? YES! The Walk runs through May 13- there is still plenty of time!
- Get involved as a walker on your own/with your household. While there are many things in place to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community, you can still go for a walk! You do need to continue to follow social distancing guidelines and other directives made by public health officials and government leaders. You can do your walk anytime between May 3-13. When you register you’ll get your own fundraising page and can ask others to support your walk.
- Make a donation– your support will make a difference as we work towards a thriving food system for all people during these challenging times. You can also mail a donation to: Access of West Michigan, 1700 28th St. SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49508, note it is for the Walk for Good Food.
- Sponsor the Walk, or ask your company or organization if they are interested! It’s not too late to join us in this way.
