Walkers set $30,000 goal
The Lincoln Walk for Development will hold its second
annual fund-raising walk April 29. The trek will be held on a
21-mile course beginning at the state fairgrounds.
Organizers said the course will be concentrated in the rural
area north of Lincoln. Toilet and water facilities will be
available, they said.
Mike Jank, walk co-ordinator, has set a goal of $30,000 for
the inarch. Each participant is sponsored by an individual or
firm which pays the marcher for every mile he walks.
Last year's walk earned $23,000 which went to support five
projects. 1 .
This year, seven local projects are being supported by the
walk. They include Action Against Hunger, a follow-up for the
soon to be discontinued Office of Economic Opportunity
Emergency Food and Medical Services. Action Against Hunger
is currently trying to initiate a breakfast-feeding program for
two schools in Lincoln's low-income area.
Also receiving support wilt be the Ma lone Center's
Handicraft Co-op for senior citizens; the Food Buyer's Club;
and a similar program sponsored by the Poorhouse Coalition.
The Indian Center tutorial program will receive funding as will
the UN L Volunteer Burearu.
Two foreign projects will receive about 40 per cent of the
funds raised. They include a vocational program in Kenya and
the Land Distribution Foundation in Guatemala.
Walk organizers said most of last year's marchers were
junior high age or younger. College age participants were the
smallest group. ,? . - . v
