We believe that when families get the right resources at the right time, our community becomes stronger and more resilient. Community Action is excited to join the statewide effort to raise awareness concerning people experiencing heat-related emergencies with our “Walk for Warmth” 5K Run/Walk at The Lynx in Otsego from 9am to 11am. Our “Walk for Warmth” will shine a spotlight on the need for emergency utility assistance in Allegan County and raise funds for families in Allegan County facing shut-off notices.
In 2018, utility assistance was the number one reason for Allegan County Residents calling United Way 2-1-1 for assistance, making up 32% of all calls made in the county. Last year Community Action kept 177 families warm through the cold winter months.
This is a family friendly untimed run/walk. Adult registration is $35 and includes a long sleeve quarter zip athletic shirt. Children ages 5-12 can attend for $15 and children under 5 are free to participate. All proceeds assist families in Allegan County facing utility shut-off notices.
