September 20, 2012 · 5:15 PM
ARLINGTON — The "Friends of the Poor Walk" will start at Haller Park, proceed through Olympic Avenue, Legion Park and the Centennial Trail, and conclude at the Arlington Community Food Bank at the Arlington Municipal Airport on Saturday, Sept. 29.
Registration will kick off at 9:45 a.m. for the walk starting at 10 a.m. to help benefit the poor in the Arlington area.
Walkers can also register online at www.svdpfriendsofthepoorwalk.org by clicking the "Walker" tab on the left-side column, arrowing forward to the Immaculate Conception Church of Arlington's ID number of 3196, clicking that button and filling out their information, while taking care to change the "Walk Event" to the Washington Arlington Haller Park event — if they don't, it will register them in Alaska — and then clicking "Add Walker."
There are no administrative fees, and all proceeds will directly benefit people in the Arlington area, through visits to the needy in their homes to provide them assistance with food, household items, clothing, utilities and shelter.
