St. John’s University will hold its “Walk for the Homeless,” a
5k fundraiser held annually on Good Friday by the University’s
Department of Campus Ministry on March 21 at 10 a.m.
The goal of the walk is to raise awareness and money for
organizations dedicated to helping the homeless. Participants
hope to surpass last year’s mark of over $35,000 raised through
sponsorships and donations.
Participants will meet at St. Thomas More Church on the
University’s Queens campus and will walk the approximately 3.1
miles throughout the local community. After arriving back on
campus, a simple meal of soup and bread will be shared by all.
To participate, make a donation, or for additional information,

Director of Media Relations at St. John’s by calling (718) 990-5789
