The 13th Annual Good Works Walk will take place Saturday, February 21, 2015 beginning and ending at the First United Methodist Church in uptown Athens. This unique walk experience is for adults and children of all ages.

This year, four different interactive experiences have been developed to creatively inspire and inform participants about the problems people without homes face, and issues of poverty in rural Appalachian Ohio. The Timothy House is the only shelter for people experiencing homelessness in eight counties and the goal of the Walk is to raise 1/3 of the total funding needed for the Timothy House ($60,000) in 2015. The Timothy House provided more than 100,000 nights of shelter since 1981. January 1st marked the Good Works 34th year of providing shelter to the rural homeless.
