Walk 2020

We walk Sunday, Nov. 8, 2020, 2 p.m. Join Interfaith-RISE, a U.S. State Department designated official resettlement agency, for our sixth annual walk-a-thon to raise money in support of refugee resettlement

A generous donor has offered us $50,000 if we can match it. Can we meet the challenge?

So far we have $38,248 towards that match. Please contribute today!



Date: Sunday, November 8, 2020

Time: 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Place: Our walk will begin and end at the Reformed Church of Highland Park, 19 S. 2nd Ave., Highland Park, NJ

We will be walking around Highland Park stopping at various faith and civic buildings to learn more about refugee resettlement and to thank those who have partnered with us over the past year. All funds raised will go to support the work of Interfaith-RISE and refugee resettlement in central New Jersey.


1. Walk with us on November 8!

2. Encourage family and friends to either walk or support you by making an online donation. They can donate here.

3. Form a team to walk together. We would especially like to see teams from our coalition members, including the many area congregations that make up our truly interfaith effort. Interested? Join us!
