Event description

Description

The Briarfest Walk to End Hunger benefitting Mercy’s Gate is two parts: A food drive at participating Briargate-area churches through Friday, Sept. 6, and a 3-mile walk at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7.

Sign up to have a food-collection bin placed in your church. Briarfest volunteers will deliver the bin, and will collect the donated food and the bin on Sept. 6. The donations will be consolidated with those of all participating churches -- an ecumenical expression of support to Mercy’s Gate, which serves the physical, financial, emotional, and spiritual needs of people who live in NE Colorado Springs.

On Saturday, Sept. 7, bring a group from your church to participate in the Walk to End Hunger. Wear your walking shoes and team colors! Bring the kids and the dogs! Starting at the Briarfest location, we’ll walk together, under banners with the name of each participating church, to the King Soopers at Briargate Parkway and Union Boulevard. Representatives of Mercy’s Gate will be on hand to formally receive the combined donation. Then we’ll return to Briarfest. Total distance: just shy of 3 miles.

There’s no cost to participate. Sign up now as a church, or as an individual.
