Kelowna's Gospel Mission serves people living with poverty in Kelowna. Your involvement in this walk impacts hundreds of lives in a positive way, helping build a bright future that once seemed out of reach.
For more than 4 years the 30K Club has been providing the next step for individuals who are on the journey from homelessness to wholeness. We have housed hundreds and helped thousands. When you walk with 30K Club on February 23 you will be part of the solution for homelessness in our city. You'll have fun, you'll be cold, but you will be helping those in our community who will not have a nice warm bed to go to at the end of the day.
