Saint Mark’s Will “Hike for Haiti” to Henniger on Saturday, May 2

 

When Saint Mark’s Episcopal Church holds its annual “Hike for Haiti” on Saturday, May 2, hikers will walk from the Eaton Canyon Nature Center to Henniger Flats. The distance is symbolic and significant. It’s approximately the same journey distance that students at Saint Marguerite School in Haiti must travel each day to get to school.

The hiking fundraiser will benefit those students at Saint Marguerite by providing a daily hot lunches to the school’s 150 students — as the Altadena congregation has done since 2012.

Braving this distance and terrain is a great reminder of how much these students value their education and how important local efforts to support them really are.

For every 25¢ raised, one child’s hot lunch will be provided, organizers say, noting that this hot lunch is the only meal a Saint Marguerite’s student will eat that day.

Organizer say you must signup by April 30. That day, be prepared and bring water,
