Winter Walkathon 2022
March 5, 2022
Mothers Against Community Gun Violence (MACGV) and its many partners will have its first Not On My Block (NOMB) Winter Walkathon! We aim to raise funds for our national public safety movement of NOMB and ongoing community violence prevention work.
We believe there is POWER where two or more gather. Our mission is to stand in solidarity, bringing awareness and proactive prevention to the violence plaguing many MN communities. "We Are Our Communities Keepers!"
We are excited to announce that this is MACGV's first annual NOMB Winter Walkathon, and with great sadness, we know this walk couldn't have come at a better time when violence in South Minneapolis and our surrounding cities is rising by the day.
On Saturday, March 5, 2022, the event will occur at Lake Nokomis. Registration opens at 9:30 am, the walk sets off at 10 am, and we will complete our event by Noon!; as native Minnesotans, we will brave the cold with community members, partners, allies, and concerned individuals ending the Walkathon at the point of beginning.
As an organization that cares about the betterment of our State, we thank you in advance for walking with us as we advocate for community safety, peace, and the change we all want to see! Together we can make this happen!
For individuals who cannot join us in person, we will offer a remote option to walk anywhere and everywhere and celebrate with us on Saturday, March 26, 2022. Details of the celebration will follow a week after the Walkathon.
