If you are unable to walk but would like to donate – we would LOVE your support (our goal is to raise $500.00 for Hendricks Chapel). You can donate at the website (each participant is listed under our group).
You can also support our fundraising efforts by purchasing a “paper heart” or “go red pin” from Ginny Yerdon at the Dean’s Office. Hearts are $1.00 and pins are $5.00.
