Last year's Walk-a-Thon raised over $10,000 to support the work of St. Nersess Seminary
February 10, 2011
The third annual St. Nersess Walk for Faith will take place on Sunday, April 3, 2011.
As in past years, friends of all ages, will gather at the Seminary for a 3-kilometer walk around New Rochelle to raise funds to support the many ministries of St. Nersess. Last year, over $10,000 was raised by walkers all over the country, who solicited pledges from family, friends and neighbors. Our goal this year is to do even better, in celebration of the Seminary's 50th Anniversary.
"Our success in the Walk comes not from a few large gifts, but from a great number of $10 and $20 donations," added Deacon Levon Altiparmakian, the Seminary administrator, who will be lacing his Nikes for the walk.
