Take a Walk, Support a Cause, Support Me!
Walking for Dreams is a very exciting concept, a multi-organization fund raising walk created by the Sycamore Foundation about 5 years ago. By combining the efforts of 20+ nonprofits who each bring a dozen or two walkers, it creates the energy and raises the dollars of a 300-500 person walk that these organizations couldn't create on their own.
Over the past 5 years, our family has walked for a couple organizations and always have a great time. The Sunday, May 23 event begins and ends outside the restored Buggs Temple at the north end of the canal downtown. The walk route winds along the canal down to White River State Park and back again. It is over before you know it.
Subtle CALL TO ACTION:
Option 1) Go to https://www.walkingfordreams.org/register.aspx and register to walk for an organization you know about or want to know about and recruit your friends, family, and co-workers to donate to support you.
Option 2) Go to https://www.walkingfordreams.org/Donate.aspx and make a contribution to a walker/organization you know of or want to learn about.
Option 3) Go to https://www.walkingfordreams.org/Donate.aspx and make a donation to support ME (Bryan Orander) walking for Southeast Community Services - SECS is the community center and basic needs safety net agency on the near SE side. If you got your job through the NFP News or you appreciate the information you receive through our free publication, here is a way to return the favor.
Option 4) Feel guilty for not participating - feel better by writing a special check to a nonprofit you respect and let us know about it.
On May 23, show up at Buggs Temple between 1-2pm to check in and browse the information tables for all participating non-profits.
