Description

The fourth annual Walk to End Homelessness, which raises money for programs that help people get off the streets, is scheduled for Saturday, April 8 at Fairmount Park, 2601 Fairmount Boulevard in Riverside.
The annual walk typically draws more than 300 people who are committed to raising money to provide opportunities for homeless families, individuals and youth to change their lives and become self-sufficient.
Registration for the two-mile, family friendly walk starts at 7 a.m. After a short presentation at 8 a.m., the walk will kick off at 8:15 a.m. The walk starts near the bandshell in the southeast corner of Fairmount Park, circles Lake Evans and finishes back near the bandshell.
Registration is $35 for adults, $20 for students with a valid student ID and $5 for those under 18.
The walk brings together non-profit organizations, social services organizations, faith-based institutions and the entire community to bring awareness to programs in place to help homeless people, and to raise money to support such programs.
