Greetings 2011 Hike for Hope Participants,
Whether this is your 1st or 12th year we thank you so much for participating in our Hike for Hope and raising much needed funds. With your help this year’s Hike for Hope will make a dramatic difference in the lives of our guests, particularly those participating in Capernaum Place, our transitional housing facility, and related education and work preparation programs.
The Hike for Hope goal is $300,000 so that together we can help more people in dire need help themselves. The launch for this year’s event is much earlier in order to help meet this goal; one team, one school, one company, one church, one civic group, one family, and one walker at a time. We are also planning several fall festival activities that day, making the event even more fun for the whole family. A special thank you to Roger and Betty Desjardins who have agreed to Chair the Hike again this year and to Dave McGillivray and DMSE Sports for their expertise.
Since its opening 91% of former Capernaum residents have found permanent housing. With your efforts in this year's Hike our guests will continue opening doors out of poverty.
On behalf of the Hike for Hope Committee we look forward to seeing you on Sunday, October 2, 2011.
With a grateful heart,
