Walk for Warmth features new 2012 Oakland venue

In its 22nd year, OLHSA, A Community Action Agency is ramping up the Walk for Warmth fun with a new Oakland Walk location - Great Lakes Crossing Outlets - to be held on Saturday, Feb. 11. This new venue will offer walkers not only the live entertainment they've come to expect from Walk for Warmth, but also shopping discounts at various outlet stores throughout the mall.

The Livingston Walk will be at the Hartland Educational Support Service Center on Saturday, Feb. 25, a tried and true location for OLHSA friends and supporters to warm up their sneakers and warm homes across the county.

As always, 100 percent of the proceeds from both Walk for Warmth events will go towards keeping the heat on in the homes of Oakland and Livingston County residents throughout our harsh Michigan winters. In the face of a persistent economic downturn, hundreds of local families will benefit from Walk for Warmth. A donation of $300 will keep the heat on in a home for an entire month, helping children stay healthy, learn better in school, and helping the whole family stay safe and warm.

Donations are now being accepted.

Walkers (teams and individuals), sponsors, and volunteers are needed for both Walk for Warmth events. Sponsorship levels have been adjusted this year to be even more attractive to local businesses.

To donate, sponsor, register to walk, request a presenter, or for all Walk for Warmth details, visit www.olhsa.org/walkforwarmth.
