Join us as we walk together through the streets of downtown Fort Wayne to help those living in poverty throughout NE Indiana.  Bishop Rhoades will be in attendance to support this special event.  Bring your friends and family and choose either a 3.1 mile (5k) route, 1-mile loop or just one lap around the concourse (1/3 mile).  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.
