The Institute for Global Outreach-Walk for Humanity - POSTPONED

April 18, 2020


The Walk for Humanity Shreveport is a 5K run/walk and 1-mile health walk sponsored by the Institute for Global Outreach (IGO) April 18 on Clyde Fant Parkway in downtown Shreveport.

This walk is a community project where people from all walks of life come together to end global suffering. A fundraiser of this nature serves two purposes. It raises funds for destitute children while raising the consciousness of the participants. It also gives them an opportunity to participate and support a local nonprofit that partners directly with local NGOs in developing countries to alleviate needless suffering in the world.
