The 2014 Friends of the Poor® Walk/Run had another outstanding year, with over 25,000 people participating at 247 walk locations across the United States. In total, more than $2.6 million was raised from this year’s event, a 25 percent increase from 2013. Of these funds raised, 100 percent will remain at the local level to help those living in need. Congratulations and thank you to all those who participated in this year’s Friends of the Poor Walk/Run. We look forward to seeing you again next year on September 26, 2015!
