Benefiting BUDDHIST GLOBAL RELIEF

 

Please join us for the first Walk to Feed the Hungry event in Houston!

 

This first walk in Houston will be along the Heights Esplanade Trail on Heights Boulevard, a beautiful setting for a walk of compassion with friends!  We invite everyone to participate by registering to walk, making a donation, or volunteering.  Your efforts and generosity will help with programs that provide direct relief, promote sustainable agriculture, and provide education and right livelihood opportunities for women.

 

The 3.3 mile walk will begin at the Houston Zen Center.  We will then walk south down Heights Boulevard towards I-10 and turn around to end the walk at the Zen Center.  Participants may turn around at any point to return to the Zen Center as needed.

 

Please bring hats, water bottles, sunblock or anything else you might need for the walk.

 

After the walk there will be closing words by abbot and head teacher of the Houston Zen Center, Gaelyn Setsuan Godwin, followed by food and refreshments generously offered by Pepper Tree and San San Tofu.
