Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Event
August 6th (12pm-8pm) – Kickoff Event in Monticello, MN; August 6th-9th – Walk at Home
This year, we have moved our Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Event from Monticello into your own communities. We will have our Kickoff Event in Monticello to share t-shirts and promotional materials participants can use while they walk in their home communities. Participants then walk their mile between August 6th and August 9th, sharing pictures/videos through social media and email. We hope that going “virtual”, we will spread the word throughout Sherburne and Wright Counties about the work we are doing here at Rivers of Hope. To learn more about this event and/or to register, please visit our website at www.riversofhope.org.
I also want you to know that while we look forward to getting folks together, we are doing so in a safe way with precautions in place, being mindful of the impact of the pandemic. Rivers of Hope continues to provide our services primarily in the remote environment, with little contact in-person in the office setting. When we do get together with individuals, we utilize safety precautions recommended by the MDH and CDC, including physical distancing as well as the use of masks. For both events, we will also maintain adherence to expectations around group gatherings, including possibly limiting numbers in one place at any given time. We appreciate your understanding regarding these expectations/procedures.
Thank you for all of your support and partnership with Rivers of Hope. We are so excited to share these events with you all, especially the Legacy Luncheon. We cannot do this work without you all!
