FREDERICK, Md.—A fundraiser to benefit a local nonprofit that helps the underserved in the Frederick community will take place at Hood College on Oct. 13. This is rescheduled from its original date of Sept. 29 due to rain.
The Walk Strong walk-a-thon for the Frederick Rescue Mission is scheduled for 12:45-2 p.m. beginning on the steps of Hood’s Alumnae Hall. It will circle the residence halls, and finish behind Alumnae Hall.
The money raised will go directly toward the Frederick Rescue Mission to help with its new food distribution center and faith house. Participants are not required to donate money to participate in the walk, but there are thank-you gifts for those who donate, including wristbands, sunglasses and T-shirts, depending on the amount.
The Frederick Rescue Mission provides food and clothing to those who need the most help from their communities. It also provides resources for people overcoming drug and alcohol addictions, and it supports homeless people in their efforts to find housing.
