I've decided to participate in the Bloomington Homeward Bound 5K walk next Sunday. I've wanted to do a walk for a while and this seems like a good one to start with.
1) There is no minimum donation to enter. So if I raise $20, I can still do it. Some walks want a minimum.
2) They are family friendly. Some of the walks don't seem to encourage moms with kids in strollers.
3) All the money stays local and goes to local agencies that help the homeless.
4) We've been concentrating our limited funds for charitable donations to local food banks and homeless shelters for the last few years. While it's great to cure diseases, that doesn't do much good if someone doesn't have enough to eat or a place to sleep.
So, if anyone would like to donate to my team, or join my team, I would appreciate it. If not, that's cool.
