A Big Thank You!

THANK YOU for making this year’s Walk for the Waiting a tremendous success!  We have a few specific thank you‘s to make:

THANK YOU to White & McGowan Financial of Northwestern Mutual for your presenting sponsorship!

THANK YOU to the 30 other businesses shown above that gave generously to support the Walk! (Including Cornerstone Pharmacy for their Platinum Sponsorship!)

THANK YOU to all 1,000+ Walkers who helped raise funds!

THANK YOU to all 1,500+ Donors who gave anywhere from $1 on up to help support the cause!

THANK YOU to all the foster and adoptive families, the mentors and volunteers that are caring for waiting children!

THANK YOU to the 65+ churches around Central Arkansas that participated in the Walk!

THANK YOU to the many Walk volunteers that helped put the Walk together!

Collectively, nearly $230,000 was raised to support the work of The CALL, Project Zero and Immerse Arkansas. We pray that God is glorified as we rally together to make sure kids in crisis in Arkansas are cared for.

Lastly, please remember – the walk has ended, but the work continues.

If you‘re interested in taking the next step toward fostering, adopting, mentoring or volunteering in some capacity, register here to participate in an upcoming I Walked, Now What? meeting.

From the entire Walk Team, THANK YOU! Let’s continue to work to make sure every child in Arkansas has a family. See you next year!
