Making a difference in the lives of people and communities in need through our Christmas for Children, Backpacks for Kids & Diapers for Babies Programs.
How we started walking...
Over the years many things have happened to help prepare our Founder's hearts for this. Health crises, loss of a child and having children with learning differences certainly has not been the easiest road to travel.
During the Christmas season, we would look for a little boy to buy for that would have been the age of the son that we lost. Then, one Christmas, a friend asked if I knew of any "needy kids." She wanted to set up an angel tree in the Hair Salon where she worked. My immediate thought was of the school where my aunt Evelyn Linkous was principal - Lashameet/Motoka in West Virginia. I called her and asked if she knew of any needy kids. She said, how many can you handle?
This led to an angel tree and a letter being sent out to our friends and family. The response was overwhelming. A total of 68 children were sponsored. Our "Walk of Christmas" campaign continued to grow every year, and in 2007 we began to collect school supplies and new clothes for the start of the school year .
Currently we serve Anne Arundel County Maryland which is our primary focus. Walk the Walk’s active programs partner with the county to provide Christmas for children, backpacks for students & diapers for babies.
