Grab your walking shoes and join Family Promise of Greater Indianapolis in the Walking for Dreams Family and Pet Walk along the scenic downtown Indianapolis Canal. Last year our 14 walk teams raised over $14,000 to work toward our mission of eliminating homelessness in the Greater Indianapolis area, one family at a time. Please go to www.walkingfordreams.org to start a team, register as a walker and make a donation. Hope to see you there!
