William's Walk 2023
William is a 25-year-old man with Down Syndrome and an advocate for people with disabilities. William's Walk was started to celebrate him reaching the milestone of taking his first steps, and inspired by William's love for people, has grown into a uniting force to serve our community in Charlotte, NC.
Each year, William's Walk benefits local families in need during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. A food drive is done to collect non-perishable food items, especially items for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. This occurs during the month immediately preceding Thanksgiving. The food collected is walked in a symbolic 1 mile walk to be donated on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving through Loaves and Fishes and Second Harvest Food Bank in Charlotte , North Carolina. The food is then shared with families in crisis during this time of year that can sometimes be very difficult on families in this situation. Read more about William's Walk at williamswalk.org.
Your donations will go towards monetary and food donations to feed our neighbors for the holiday season. Please consider joining us for Williams Walk 2023.
