Addressing the Climate Crisis is an urgent concern, especially at this time, with our government at the federal and state levels in the hands of climate change deniers and delayers.
To demonstrate broad concern, we invite you to join together with caring neighbors from throughout mid-Missouri for Walk for the Climate, a Rally and 5K walk to be held on the afternoon of Sunday, Sept. 8. This event will raise awareness as to the urgent need to address the climate crisis. We will gather, rally and then walk as a group through downtown CoMo and the MU campus, carrying signs and banners.
The Walk is also aiming to raise funds to support Peaceworks’ climate education and advocacy work. While fundraising is optional, we really do need to raise funds. To encourage you we will have prizes ($50 gift certificate to the Peace Nook) for the person who raises the most and the person with the most sponsors ($1/km or greater). And all who raise $50 or more will receive a Walk for the Climate 2019 T-shirt.
Sponsor sheets will be available soon at the Peace Nook or on-line
Please tell friends. Invite them to walk with you. Note that this is not a race. It’s a group walk and all are welcome to join in. Those who are not able to walk this distance are encouraged to walk a distance comfortable for them, or to just participate in the Rally.
Please note: We will gather at Courthouse Plaza., 8th & Walnut in downtown CoMo. Registration opens at 1:00. There will be live music as we gather. Please plan to arrive no later than 1:30. We will have a short rally and then head out for the Walk at 2 p.m.
