THANK YOU so much to everyone involved in the 12th Annual Walk of Hope. We were blessed with such a beautiful day – many teams in attendance, great food, fun activities and lots of beautiful luminaries. We would like to express our sincere appreciation for –

• Everyone who participated in the Walk of Heroes – you are all truly HEROES!!!

•The opening ceremony with the local Girl Scout Troop playing “God Bless America” on the bells and Art Abel with the opening invocation.

•Musical entertainment by Dennis Foley, Hutterite Women, and Jeff Hoppe.

• Hunter & Bailey Merritt for making and donating lanyards for the cancer survivors.

• Cody Sibson for the generous donation of pea rock for the luminary bags.

• Murray’s Garage for the use of Golf Carts for the Walk of Heroes.

• The GWO and Graceville Fire Department for preparing & serving a delicious meal.

• The many donations for the Basket Auction and prizes for the raffle.

Thank you to all the teams who work so hard year round doing fundraisers and raising awareness of our organization and thanks to everyone for supporting these teams and the fundraisers – your generosity is appreciated so very much!

A special Thank You to the Northern Star and the Ortonville Independent for everything you do to promote our group.

Plans will begin soon for the 13th Annual Walk of Hope which will be in Clinton on September 16, 2017. We meet monthly and are always happy to welcome new volunteers and new teams – watch the local newspapers for meeting dates & times. Unfortunately the need for help never stops and we feel fortunate that we are able to provide some assistance and support to our neighbors, friends, and families during an extremely difficult time.

Again – thank you so much – TOGETHER WE WILL FIGHT, TOGETHER WE WILL WIN!!
