On October 17th, the Greater Syracuse Hunger Walk took place at Onondaga Lake. It was a cold, windy and rainy day but Immanuel's team of Jane M., Amy S., Peg Webster, Shelley DS, Pastor Jack, Erin, Chris & Joey P. and Penny the dog did our best.
Unfortunately the inclement weather persisted so we weren't able to walk the entire 3 miles because we were cold, wet and our sneakers were very soggy but we made a great effort!
At the end of the walk we were treated to a snack and bottles of water by Liverpool First United Methodist Church, which was very kind of them.
I'm happy to say that Immanuel exceeded it's goal of $1,500.00 because of the fund raising efforts of the team members and also Barb and Gary M. Thanks to everyone who contributed, your donation of $2,234.00 will help fund nine local agencies that feed and minister to the people in our community.
Thank you everyone!
