Walk for Warmth celebrating 30 years; Livingston County event set for Feb. 15

OLHSA, a community action agency, along with premier sponsor Genisys Credit Union, is hosting its 30th Walk for Warmth event on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2020, at the Hartland Educational Support Service Center in Howell. The event raises much-needed funds to OLHSA’s emergency utility assistance program, which keeps local residents safe and comfortable in their homes.

Last year, OLHSA’s Walk for Warmth in Livingston County raised over $76,000. All money raised in Livingston County directly assists those in need.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. with a kick-off scheduled for 9 a.m. This family friendly event is non-competitive and includes entertainment like activities for kids, music, and giveaways throughout the walk course. Each participant will also receive a commemorative T-shirt and goodie bag.

“OLHSA is excited to be celebrating 30 years hosting the Walk for Warmth and raising funds to help those in need in the communities we serve,” said Susan Harding, OLHSA CEO. “We’ve seen organizations big and small, families, and individuals come out to raise funds and make a difference in the lives of those needing a helping hand. The energy and support the event brings is amazing and we hope to have a great turnout as we have in the past.”

Online registration for the event is open and individuals and teams can sign up to solicit support and track their fundraising progress. To register, visit www.olhsa.org/walk4warmth. The Oakland County walk will take place on Saturday, Feb. 29, at 7:30 a.m. at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in Auburn Hills. Sponsorship levels begin at $500 and go up to $10,000 and higher.
