St. Teresa's is "Stepping Up" to help Sojourner Truth House

Wont' you join in? 

Here is your opportunity to ‘Step Up’ and help out our friends at Sojourner Truth House. 

STH is having their 16th Annual Walk for STH on June 13, 2015 in Gary. Registration begins at 8:00am, the walking starts at 9:00am. It is only 1.6 miles, so it should take less than an hour. 

There is NO registration fee to join the team and you do NOT have to donate to be on a team. Hopefully, you’ll do some fundraising by getting sponsors. 

Our team name is “St. Teresa of Avila – Stepping Up.” Just go to their website to sign up!

It's really easy to join the team, create your own team, donate $, be a sponsor, help out......  There are all kinds of opportunities. 

My philosophy – “The answer is always NO until you ask”—paid off! Bishop Hying agreed to walk on our team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go St. Teresa’s! Let’s show them what our parish is capable of!

Come out, have fun, meet new people, and help out those in need. If you have ANY questions, please feel free to e-mail Amy Francis.
