2015 Walk for Niagara is a Success!

Individuals and groups from all over the Niagara region enjoyed spending a beautiful spring day outdoors while also supporting a great cause! This year's Walk for Niagara was held on April 25 at Whirlpool State Park. Over 100 participants, along with approximately 15-20 four-legged friends, supported Community Missions by collecting sponsorships and donations. Proceeds will benefit programs such as the Community Soup Kitchen, Food Pantry, Emergency Housing Shelter, Mark's Place, Clothes Closet, and Kids Café.

Participants of the Walk were enthusiastic as they began the two-mile trek from Whirlpool State Park to Devil's Hole State Park and back. Upon returning, walkers enjoyed a picnic lunch of food generously provided by Tops, Goodman's Farm Market, and Tim Horton's, as well as a 50/50 raffle. Children also took advantage of the park's playground, as well as games provided by Community Missions, and many others simply enjoyed the scenery along the gorge.

The ten individuals who raised the most funds for the event received prizes of gift cards from various stores and restaurants. The top student team, LCTV, was the recipient of a pizza party provided by Legends Bar and Grill and the top business team, Norampac, will receive a lunch provided by the Mission from Wegmans. Another noted supporter, Longhorn Steakhouse, created a fundraising competition between two restaurant locations in support of the Walk.

Community Missions would like to thank several businesses, including Blackwinds Pet Supplies, Fidelis Care, and Local Edge, for serving as sponsors for the events, as well as the numerous participants and volunteers who made this year's Walk for Niagara a success.
