DUMFIRES, Va. – A Dumfries church will hold a walk to help families in need.
Image Church once again this year will hold I-Walk on Saturday at Merchant Park at Cameron and Duke Streets in Dumfries on Saturday. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. and the 2 and a quarter-mile walk will begin at 10 a.m.
All of the proceeds raised from registered participants will go to benefit ACTS of Prince William County. For every two I-Walk registrations received, the church will help ACTS to provide housing for one person for one night.
“It’s very eye-opening to realize that the things we can so easily take for granted like shelter and food so many people in our community are without. Participating in I-Walk is an easy and fun way that we can make a direct impact for families struggling to make ends meet,” said Image Church Deconess Kate Shifflett.
A $25 registration fee will be charged for those ages 25 or younger, a $30 fee will be charged for those aged 30 and older.
A free community festival will follow the walk featuring music, moon bounces for children, family crafts, and a video game van.
Image Church located 17650 Possum Point Road in Dumfries launched the I-Walk event last year in an effort to support ACTS.
