We’re happy to share that the course maps for the 2016 A Walk To Believe 5K Run and Walk are now available! This is the first time that A Walk To Believe has had a certified 5K course for runners, so we’re more excited than ever! Head over to the course maps page to take a look!
WOW. WOW. WOW.
Thanks to your continued generosity, hard work, and support, A Walk To Believe raised more than $82,000 from our 2015 event.
Because of you, we can continue the work towards quality-of-life initiatives, therapies, and research for the more than 5.6 million people living with paralysis. Because of you, we can continue to promote Eric LeGrand’s mission and mantra to BELIEVE. Because of you, we can keep chopping until we reach the end zone – a cure for spinal cord injury.
We are truly humbled and invigorated by your generosity of support and spirit. We hope you’ll stick by us as we continue this journey.
For those who have asked, we are still (and always) accepting donations.
Thank you, again, for staying with us and making 2015 such a memorable and successful year for our organization and those we support. We’ve only just begun!
We’re just over a month out from the Fifth Annual A Walk To Believe! We’re gearing up for a really exciting year, and look forward to celebrating our fifth year alongside the our supporters. Whether you’ve been there since day one or are just joining us for the first time, we thank you for your continued support, inspiration, and spirit.
This will be the first year that A Walk To Believe features a 5K run, and we are proud to announce that we are certified and sanctioned by USA Track and Field! As a USATF sanctioned race, we are committed to follow national and international rules and regulations of the sport and to provide a safe environment for the participants and spectators. For more information about USATF, visit their website.
In addition, volunteer forms have been added! More events means that we need more help than ever, so please check out the volunteer page to see the ways you can lend a hand!
Thank you, and we’ll see you before you know it!
From the beginning, A Walk To Believe has been an organization about family – about bringing people together, whether related or not, for a shared purpose and vision. Since our organization started in 2010, we have built our own community, our own family of believers, and we are continuously touched and humbled by just how far we’ve come without losing sight of how far we have to go.
We were very excited when Billy Luzzi, a high school senior in North Carolina, reached out to A Walk To Believe President Arlene Gonzalez to interview her about A Walk To Believe’s vision, mission, and involvement in spinal cord injury research.
On December 14, Billy and two of his classmates organized a fundraiser of their own, a cookout that raised around $500.00 for A Walk To Believe. We want to not only thank Billy and his team for an incredibly generous donation, but congratulate them on their success and hard work. We continue to be inspired by our supporters’ continued dedication not only to our organization, but to our mission of finding a cure for spinal cord injuries.
Thank you to Billy and his friends Kelly Barnhill and Copeland Spell! Congratulations on a job well done!
