Congregations of many faiths from throughout Central NJ will gather in Highland Park for the third annual Walk-A-Thon for Refugee Resettlement on Sunday, November 12, 2017 from 2 - 4pm. To date, Interfaith-RISE has helped settle 64 refugees and 21 asylees from the Elizabeth Detention Center to central New Jersey, many with very young families.

The Walk-A-Thon will raise funds to help Interfaith-RISE directly assist recently relocated refugee families with housing costs and other essentials during crucial months of their transition. The coalition will distribute funds and call upon various faith communities to provide as-needed materials and social support for families. There is a great need for financial support for these individuals and families and we are hoping to raise enough funding to help each one during our Walk-a-Thon.

Where: Route begins at the Reformed Church of Highland Park located at 19 South 2nd Avenue, Highland Park, NJ 08904. 1.5 mile walk through Highland Park will include informational stops at various houses of worship and other locations in town where refugees, faith leaders and municipal leaders will share thoughts and reflections.
