Get Moving For A Good Cause

BAPS Charities Dallas WalkathonMark Your Calendar For The Upcoming Walkathon

Certainly, you would love to run a marathon to benefit a charity, but all those miles would be too much for you to take on. That does not mean, however, that you cannot undertake a little physical activity for a good cause. In fact, there is a local event just around the corner that gives you the chance to get moving to benefit important work.

On May 16th, hundreds of community members of all ages will be walking to benefit the American Cancer Society and BAPS Charities. This event is facilitated by BAPS Charities, a nonprofit that has over fifty years of experience raising funds for humanitarian causes across the world. This year’s BAPS Charities Dallas Walkathon will be held at T.W. Richardson Park (333 E. Interstate Hwy. 635) in Irving. Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m., with the event itself kicking off at 9:00 a.m.

So far, this individual event has already raised over $6,500 for the American Cancer Society and other important causes! It is just one of over 50 walkathons that are taking place across North America, of which are bringing together over 16,000 volunteers. In Irving, you have the opportunity to be a part of this massive movement for a good cause just by putting one foot in front of the other! If you want to get involved by donating funds, you can do so by heading here.
