Registration now open for the 29th Annual Walk for Warmth
Registration is now open for the Macomb Community Action 29th Annual Walk for Warmth event. The event will take place on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at Macomb Mall in Roseville.
Walk for Warmth raises funds to assist low-income Macomb County residents with heat-related emergencies like paying utility bills or replacing a broken furnace. Since it began, the event has raised over $750,000 to help ensure that local families can stay warm in their homes throughout the winter.
"It is always a heart-warming experience to help warm the homes of those in need, and there are thousands of Macomb residents who need such support each winter," said Ernest Cawvey, director of Macomb Community Action. "Without our community partners, such as Macomb Mall, our financial and in-kind sponsors, and compassionate community members, this event would not be what it is today."
Check-in begins at 8 a.m. inside the mall at the Dick's Sporting Goods entrance. New to the event this year, there will be an indoor walk only, which will begin at 9 a.m.
To register for the event or to make a donation, visit the Macomb Community Action website here. The registration fee is $25/participant. Sponsorships are still available starting at $500 and going up to $10,000. To become a sponsor, visit the MCA website or contact Macomb Community Action at (586) 469-6232.
