OPEN M is holding the Walk for Kids on May 5. The event begins at 11:00 a.m. for registration, and the walk starts promptly at noon. Rain or shine, the walk will take place at The Heritage Barn in Silver Springs Park, Stow.


"We are a comprehensive, faith-based ministry that helps people throughout the greater Akron area meet the spiritual and physical challenges of living with scarce resources," said OPEN M on their website. 


"A 1-mile Walk through the Metro Parks starts promptly at Noon. What a great way to raise money for OPEN M while enjoying the sights of the park! It will be fun for everyone!"


They have a goal of $100 for each walker, by asking ten sponsors to donate $10 or more. This is a major fundraising event for OPEN M, and they are asking for as much help as they can get.


Team Captains and Walkers are needed! Call Tiffany Stahl today to volunteer as a Walker or Team Captain at (330) 434-0110, Ext. 404. Or, you can e-mail her at: projects@openm.org.
