If you missed it, watch the recording of our LIVE virtual Wonder Walk program!
Over 700 walkers from around the Tampa Bay Area support Cornerstone Family Ministries Annual Wonder Walk. This is an event for all ages and abilities for a good cause.
This hybrid event serves as a prayer walk and fundraiser to raise scholarship funds and pray for over 14,000 babies, toddlers, preschoolers and school aged children served by Cornerstone. The scholarships raised at Wonder Walk provide quality early childhood education and nutritious food to the 0-5 year old economically disadvantaged students attending one of three Rosa Valdez Early Learning Centers and Lab Schools located across Tampa Bay.
Cornerstone has been a beacon of hope for children and families in the Tampa Bay region for 130 years and we can’t continue without the support of the community. It costs $3,000 to scholarship a child and our goal is to raise at least $150,000 so that we can provide over half of the 200 scholarships needed through this event. Each scholarship makes it possible for a child to receive a full-time (5 days a week) quality early childhood education and 3 nutritious meals a day so that some of our parents can work and go to school to “earn and learn” their way out of the cycle of poverty.
This event would not be possible without our sponsors. 100% of the proceeds raised from this event directly impact the lives of the students and families we serve.
Amount Raised to Date: $114,318Help us reach our $150,000 goal!
The goal of our 42nd Annual Wonder Walk Fundraiser is to raise $150,000 in early learning scholarships for the economically disadvantaged 0-5 yr. old students who attend Rosa Valdez Early Learning Center. Therefore, this event will include several opportunities for you to give!
1. FUN from VIRTUALLY ANYWHERE!
Many of our church, school and family teams have found that picking their own location yields higher participation. So we support and encourage walkers to be creative, pick a location and join us virtually!
2. Virtual Silent Auction
