Seven Ministries of Liberty County has set its Jackie Gilliard-Henderson Memorial Scholarship Walk-a-Thon for May 18.
Funds raised will be used for scholarships to graduating seniors from Liberty County’s public high schools. Additional funds will support the organization’s other programs, such as its drug and alcohol ministry and programs for youths and the elderly, according to organizer Gary Gilliard.
The 7-mile walk will start at Bradwell Institute, near the baseball field. Participants will meet at 6:30 a.m., and the walk starts at 7.
Gilliard said mayors in the county have been invited as co-grand marshals.
Seven Ministries, a non-profit organization, was incorporated in 2012 and offers a variety of programs.
“Last year we awarded $4,000 in scholarships, donated over $2,000 in gifts to senior citizens, and sponsored a back-to-school rally in Holmestown, where we passed out over $1,800 in school supplies,” Gilliard said. “We also support the local Manna House and the homeless coalition.”
Walkers 21 and older are asked to give $20; those 16-20 are asked to give $10. There is no fee for younger children.
