We are holding the event at St. Charles Preparatory School (athletic track) on September 25, 2021, to coincide with the National FOP Walk date. Full details are available at the website listed above. Please visit the site to register, donate, find a walker, or create/join a team.  The National site is located at The FOP walk is a great way for conferences to generate funds to support their work, as 100% of the money generated goes back to each individual conference.  T-shirts are free to each registered walker and there is no sign-up cost for the event.  

We are looking forward to the opportunity to walk with our fellow Vincentians and Friends to help generate funds for those whom we serve.  Please note the time of the event on the 25th is subject to change (slightly) to accommodate available parking at St. Charles. There will be more to come as we get closer to the event in September.
