Are You Ready to Take a Walk?

The Biggest community service experience to ever come to Concord University took place on November 6, 2008!

Each year, millions of children across the world live without shoes, clean water, schools, or proper medical care. Their lives are hard and there is very little that they can do to better themselves. THAT’S WHERE YOU COME IN!

The band, Hanson, recently released their new CD, THE WALK. And with it they implemented a new community service project. The WALK is one lap around campus, on November 6th from 4:00-5:00 PM starting in front of the library.

This is a great chance to do something very small and have a major effect on the world around you. And people everywhere are taking notice. Knoxville News said this about the Take the Walk Challenge:

“Take the Walk is literally taking steps to end poverty and HIV/AIDs in Africa . The program calls for fans to gather, either with the band on tour or in self-organized groups, and walk one mile. For every mile walked by participants, Hanson donates a dollar to one of five causes the walker can choose from: drilling clean water wells, providing drugs to HIV-positive mothers, building schools, donating a pair of TOMS Shoes and providing access to doctors.”
