Our Faith, Love & Walk is on Onward Day. We named it Onward with the realization that we all have something in our lives from which to move Onward. To help each of us take action in moving Onward we host 14 charities at our Faith, Love & Walk. They need our help and perhaps you need their help, too. Take time to meet each charity on Monday, April 16th, 2018 and visit their website to learn how they might be your Onward.
