Hunger Walk

While we have unfortunately had to cancel our group walk to due CV-19 restrictions, we encourage persons to individually walk and obtain sponsors. The options are limitless. For example, we have a long-term walker who has partnered with his wife to walk 50 miles a month from May through August in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary.  Any walk proceeds or donations can be easily mailed in via our donation form.  Thanks in advance for your continued remote support of this long-standing WHA tradition!

Download your team registration form from here or from our resources page and be sure to let all your golfing friends know about this great opportunity for golf, fun, fellowship and the support of a great cause!


Bike Ride - FORMAT CHANGE (SEE BELOW)

Saturday, June 6 - registration Begins at 8AM

Because of concerns presented by the COVID-19 virus, the format for the 2020 World Hunger Bike Ride will be new and different.  Rather than riding designated courses on a single day, cyclists are invited to ride routes of their choosing in accordance with social distancing practices and record their mileage from May 1 through September 1.  As always, they are asked to seek pledges or donate an entry fee to participate.
 
Cyclists will be asked to submit their donations and the number of miles they ride by September 5.  A donation of $500 will be made to the Auction in honor of the one with the most total miles. Please send donations to World Hunger Auction, 130 Hickman Road, Rocky Mount, VA 24151. 
 
You are encouraged to share this information with all who might want to ride or support a rider.  Even though the challenges are different this year, the ride can still raise funds for those who are hungry and need support.  Blessing to all who join in this effort either as a rider or a donor.


Organ Concert  - DECISION TBD?

Sunday, TBD -  starting at 4PM


Please join us at

 Antioch Church of the Brethren and enjoy a very entertaining program of advance organ compilations by Franklin County's own Jonathan Emmons. This entertaining event will be followed by a delicious dessert fellowship.  Be sure not to miss this wonderful afternoon of music and fellowship.
