2019 Friends of the Poor Walk

Our 9th Annual Friends of the Poor 10,000 Step Walk sponsored by UPMC will take place during the month of September 2019. Our Walk is designed to meet the busy schedules of people who care about their community and want to help others.

Instead of scheduling the Walk on one specific day, during a specific time, at a central location, The Friends of the Poor Walk allows participants to choose the day (or days), time, and location to walk that is most convenient during the month of September.

Last year, 36 local St. Vincent de Paul conference groups participated in the event, raising more than $44,000 to support their important works of charity.

Harmer Grove in North Park

One of our biggest walk locations is located at Harmer Grove in North Park on Sunday, September 22. There will be a 9 a.m. mass followed by a short walk for the poor (less than one mile).
