Walk for Rice 25th Anniversary
Saturday, June 27th at Seward Park

Please join our Walk for Rice team! Sign up here: http://walkforrice.kintera.org/faf/search/searchTeamPart.asp?ievent=1135533&lis=1&kntae1135533=06E244DFA4BA4C6CB5DD65F232C114C3&team=6388855

Blaine Memorial was an early collaborator of Walk for Rice, an annual fundraiser for ACRS’s Food Bank. Sam Mitsui, a member of our church, helped create the event. ACRS directly serves so many APIs in our local community around Blaine and it’s an honor to help them out. The walk/run is a family-friendly event just around Seward Park on Saturday morning, June 27. However if you are unable to make the event and/or walk, you can still donate!

Help us get a large team to support ACRS and honor Sam for all the work he has done in creating Walk for Rice!
