Serving Neighbors through a Walk-A-Thon

Submitted By New Vision Church

New Vision Church of Milpitas (led by Senior Pastor David Yi) is hosting a "Neighborhood Walk-A-Thon" event at the Milpitas High School football stadium on Saturday, April 23. Our church celebrated its 30th anniversary in February and is hosting a series of celebratory events throughout the year. This walk-a-thon will be a first show of commitment to the local community and the city of Milpitas.

This event is being sponsored by church members through self-donation or recruitment of sponsors. All donations collected through this event will be used to help disadvantaged neighbors in our community. The funds will help less advantaged students at John Sinnott Elementary School, feed the hungry through Milpitas Food Pantry (www.milpitasfoodpantry.org), and support battered women and their children through InnVision (www.innvision.org).

In addition to our church members' support, we welcome other individual or company-wide sponsorship. For more information, please contact the New Vision Church Event Committee: (408-605-6225, 408-202-0490) or walkathon@newvisionchurch.org.

This event is open to anyone who desires to serve his or her neighbors. Milpitas Mayor Jose Esteves and Milpitas school district superintendent Dr. Karl N. Black will also attend and speak at the event.

Registration will start on Saturday morning, from 9 a.m. followed by opening remarks and a simple service. The Walk-A-Thon will begin approximately at 9:45 a.m. Awards will be offered to the participant who raises the most in donations, and prize-winning raffle tickets will be distributed to participants as well. The event will come to an end around noon.

Participants are encouraged to wear light clothing and hats. In the festive spirit, cotton candy and balloons will be provided for children, and the New Vision Church Brass Band will provide musical entertainment. This will be a pleasant spring outing for all ages to share in a Saturday morning with family, friends, and community members in support of a good cause.
