Cornerstones and Mayflowers are gearing up for the third annual Reston Town Center Help the Homeless Walk Thursday at noon.
Cornerstones says more than 300 participants have signed up for the walk, in which participants will walk from Mayflowers to Embry Rucker Community Shelter and back.
Several groups from Reston Town Center-based businesses such as Microsoft and Leidos will also participate. Two businesses making an impact: Primatics, which will present a $25,000 check at the event as well as well as Cooley, the law office that will give $25,100 that employees have raised to help the homeless.
Participants will walk for a family or individual housed through Cornerstones’ Rapid Re-Housing Challenge. Cornerstones’ goal for the project is to house 15 families and 25 individuals from July through September.
The first 200 people to check in will receive a floral umbrella from Mayflowers.
Want to walk? Here is what you need to know?
Entry fee is $25 ($20 for youth). Sponsorship of families in need is also available. Visit Cornerstones online to register.
Participants will gather at Mayflowers Floral Studio, 11959 Market St. in the Promenade, for opening remarks by organizers and Delegate Ken Plum and Supervisor Cathy Hudgins.
