Lexington Rescue Mission’s 11th annual Walk for Warmth set for February 24 at Phoenix Park

Hundreds of people will put on their walking shoes to trek two miles downtown and raise support to end homelessness on Saturday, Feb. 24.

The 11th Annual Walk for Warmth will start at 10 a.m. at Phoenix Park and end at Calvary Baptist Church. All proceeds will go directly toward the Lexington Rescue Mission’s Homeless Intervention Program, which helps homeless individuals and families find affordable housing, pays their first month’s rent, and provides after-care to ensure they stay housed. In 2017, this program prevented and ended homelessness for more than 100 local households.

Participants can find event details and register online at walkforwarmth.org. Registration is also available at the event at 9:30 a.m., and the walk will begin at 10 a.m. There is a $20 early registration fee (before Feb. 16) or a $30 late registration fee for adults, and children 12 and under can participate for free. Prizes will be awarded to the individuals and teams who raise the most funds, and everyone who participates will receive a t-shirt and lunch immediately after the walk.

Lexington Rescue Mission is an interdenominational Christian ministry that meets the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of hurting people in the greater Lexington area. It is accredited by the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions and the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.
