Join us as we walk together through the streets of downtown Fort Wayne to raise support for those suffering in poverty throughout NE Indiana.  Bishop Rhoades and Mayor Tom Henry will help us kick off this special event.  Bring your friends and family and choose from either distance:  a 1-mile loop or a full 3.1 mile (5k) route.  Thank you for helping us raise awareness and funding for the many caring programs of the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Fort Wayne! 


The Friends of the Poor® Walk is a national event coordinated by the Development Team at the National Council of the United States Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
