You don't have to be a teenager to join the CUCC Walk for Hope team!
When: Sunday, October 12, turn in your pledge form and donations at 9:30 am, look for your CUCC teammates. The walk begins at 10:00.
Where: The 10 k walk begins at the Angus Barn Restaurant parking lot on US 70 and winds along the paved roads of Umstead State Park. You don't have to walk the whole route; a shuttle will bring you back from any point along the route. Suzette is already planning to keep her walk short, so you won't be alone.
Why: Walk for Hope raises funds for scientific research into the causes, cures and to discover more effective treatment of mental illness.
Celebrate: The Walk ends back at the Angus Barn for a fabulous post walk celebration with live music, great food and prizes. It is a fun day, a great way to get exercise and spend time with friends and family and all the while helping many who suffer in silence.
Just click the link below to register and join the team. Note our team code is: CUCC.
Can't walk with us? You can pledge online at http://walkforhope.com/donate.aspx (CUCC team) or after worship Sept. 28 and Oct. 5.

One idea was to request you bring a food from the Bible as a novel idea to share. (This tests your Bible knowledge as well). I guess that means salt would be O.K. in memory of Sodom and Gomorrha, and there are a number of other options as well inclusive of milk and honey. See if your imagination inspires ideas. Put the date on the social calendars, and we'll look forward to seeing you and hearing about your summer!
