|One of Greenville’s longstanding community-wide events, United Ministries’ Transformation Walk brings together people from all walks of life to raise awareness about poverty in Greenville and those who are in need of a “hand-up” in order to move their lives in a positive direction. Beginning at Fluor Field, participants walk the three mile route that many people take when seeking assistance from valuable service agencies in downtown Greenville who are working to find solutions to poverty.|
Proceeds from the walk benefit all of United Ministries’ life changing programs that equip vulnerable individuals to become independent and productive members of our community. The event provides funds for job skills training, adult education, financial stability programs, as well as emergency assistance. In addition, the Transformation Walk supports our Place of Hope, a homeless day shelter that not only offers basic services—a shower, restroom, socks, or a winter coat—but also provides case management through which the root causes of homelessness are discovered and addressed.
The Transformation Walk draws as many as 1,200 passionate individuals, families, congregations, youth groups, and business professionals from all across the Greenville Area. The Transformation Walk is a family-friendly event with entertainment for all ages. Participants form teams and work together to raise money for United Ministries’ valuable programs.
The Walk begins and ends at Fluor Field. Please park in Greenville County Square at 301 University Ridge, Greenville, SC 29601.
