COBYS Family Services will host the 24th Annual Family Fun Walk on Sunday, May 6, at Peter Becker Community, 800 Maple Ave., Harleysville. The walk begins at 4 p.m., with registration beginning at 3:30 p.m.
The event consists of a three-mile walk, followed by ice-cream, refreshments, and awarding of door prizes. Walkers donate, enlist sponsors to benefit COBYS ministries to children and families, or both. Despite cool, dreary weather, last year’s walk attracted 90 participants and raised $11,569 to support COBYS ministries. This year, we are looking to attract 100 walkers and establish a new giving record.
The top two fundraisers receive grand prizes and can select either two tickets for Sight and Sound Theatre’s new show: Jesus, or pick a favorite door prize. All participants receive a free t-shirt, ice-cream and refreshments, and a chance to win a door prize. Additional prizes are available for those who reach certain levels of support. Youth groups who raise $1,000 or more receive a free gym and pizza night.
