Supporting: Walk for HOPE 2022 for Sierra Hope
My Team: Diocese of San Joaquin
Sierra Hope has provided Hope to those affected by HIV/AIDS for the past 30+ years. Their mission is to "instill hope, foster knowledge, encouraging sensitivity and provide support in our communities for HIV/AIDS, other chronic diseases and related social issues." They do this by providing case management, addressing issues of homelessness, housing, and food insecurity in our community. They provide emergency financial assistance, screening for HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C, as well as educational presentations. Won't you chip in to help this good work continue?
Join our Walk for HOPE and raise funds and awareness in the community of the services provided by Sierra HOPE. This walk in the redwoods is an opportunity to come together with others who care about those who need assistance, and to raise funds to continue these services.
Register as a participant, join a team, or be a team leader. Then let your friends know how they can participate in the fun by donating and by coming to Big Trees on September 24.
Donations may be tax-deductible, as is the registration fee (also considered a donation.) Participants who raise $100 or more in donations receive an event t-shirt. Additional T-shirts can be purchased.
Registration is a two-step process: Enter your data and pay for your registration, and then set up your personal fundraising page. You can create a team or participate as an individual, but creating your page allows you to invite friends through social media to support you and the Walk for HOPE.
When you arrive on September 24. you will choose your trail and either take a bag lunch or come back to the camp site and join us for lunch. Trails Include:
- The North Grove trail, a gentle, well-marked loop about 1.5 miles long that is barrier free,
- The 5-mile trail in the South Grove which passes the park’s two largest trees – the Agassiz Tree and the Palace Hotel Tree, and the 600 ft. long
- Three Senses Trail, one of the earliest accessible design trails in the State Park system, and allows visitors to experience the feel, smell, and sounds of this magnificent forest.
