Spring 2019 Walks to Feed the Hungry
Kim Behan and Carla Prater
The Walks to Feed the Hungry are Buddhist Global Relief’s main fundraising events, usually held in the fall. This year, in addition to the fall walks, we will have three walks in the springtime.
The first will be held in San Jose on March 30 and Ayya Santussika, Sylvia Gomes, and Jim Nelson will be the walk organizers. Next up is a walk in Hampshire in the UK, to take place on May 4, led by Geoff Hunt of the New Buddha Way. The San Diego Walk is on June 16, hosted by the Buddhist Temple of San Diego's Sangha Teens and Jr. Young Buddhists Association with Sharon Sasaki as the walk organizer. You can sign up for these walks on our website at www.buddhistglobalrelief.org.
Walk in Surrey, U.K.
