Mother’s Day March with Hope Rises Up
May 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
We are sourcing compassion and resources for the benefit of Mamas and the people they love who have been impacted by violence, tragedy, the disparities within our criminal justice system, and all manners of injustice.
The 5K walk will start and end at 5 Academy Ave. in Pennington, NJ. Thank you to the First Baptist Church for hosting this community event. All marchers must wear a properly fitting mask. Signs with messages supporting the movement are welcomed. Please remember to bring your own reusable (and full!) water bottle to stay hydrated!
We invite all marchers to invite friends and family to sponsor their walk, to help raise funds for the Bail Out. And yes, you are welcome to just sponsor yourself 🙂 You may use THIS FORM (optional) to keep track of your sponsors. If you are able, please get your pledges in EARLY, as we will send the initial payment to the bailout fund on Friday, May 7, in order to help Mamas to be bailed on Mother’s Day. The balance of the funds received will be sent on Wednesday, May 12 to help with future bailouts.
Please REGISTER via the link below to become a walker, and use the form to collect sponsorships. If you use Facebook, please also RSVP on the EVENT PAGE.This helps us spread the word! Cash and checks may be dropped off at dandelion wishes, 45 West Broad Street, Hopewell, or brought to the event.
