Join Compassionate Fremont in the 2017 Compassion Games! One goal of Compassionate Fremont is to highlight the good shared on a daily basis in our community. The Global Unity Games sponsored by Compassion Games International gives us an opportunity to measure our compassion and random acts of kindness. Fremont participated for the first time last year with 3,740 volunteers giving 13,552 hours of service, assisting 23,878 people, and raising $201,946 in a span of 11 days. (For our report, go to https://s3.amazonaws.com/compassionreports/index.html and locate Fremont on the map.)
This year, the Global Unity Games are September 9 through 24 and we are hoping to double our impact. You can participate as an individual, a club, service group or organization. For more information contact Sr. Annette (email: BurkartMA@SNDdeN.org).
One Fremont event during the Global Unity Games is our annual celebration of the United Nations International Day of Prayer for Peace on September 21. Join us at Lake Elizabeth in a gathering of people from all faith traditions to stand united against white supremacy and hatred by praying for peace. The event begins with a Peace Walk at 5 p.m. around the lake and concludes at 6 p.m. with Prayer for Peace from various faith traditions at the Peace Pole.
