Friends of the Poor Walk 2020 (Virtual Walk)

Friends of the Poor Walk/Run 2020 - Saturday September 26, 2020

Please note: The health and safety of our community is paramount. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will instead hold a "virtual" walk/run, with details for that further below.

Details of a "virtual" walk/run:

  • Registration, pledging and donating will all take place online.
  • Click here to register online as a "virtual walk" fundraising participant.
  • Click here and scroll to "Find a Walker" or "Find a Team" to find a registered walker or team to donate a pledge online.
  • Click here to donate online to the event.
  • All participants are requested to say a prayer in support of all our friends in need at 9:00 a.m. Saturday September 26, 2020.
  • As a sign of solidarity and unity, each participant will walk or run in their own neighborhood starting at 9:05 a.m. Saturday September 26, 2020. Any walk or run length is acceptable, but the recommended distance is 5K (3.1 miles). It should take about 60 minutes to complete the walk.
  • Each participant is asked to have their sponsors or donors contribute online via the personal pledge page that is created during registration.
  • While our preference is for donations to be made online, if the donors are inclined to instead to send a check, please make the check payable to: The Society of St Vincent de Paul, and include the name of the walker or team in the "Memo" line of your check. Please mail the check to: The Society of St Vincent de Paul, c/o 1313 Northway Lane NE, Rochester MN, 55906.
