We Walk Together 2020 Events Postponed
As concerns around the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to grow, BAPS Charities has been closely monitoring the guidance of public health agencies to decide how best to proceed with We Walk Together 2020, supporting the work of Susan G. Komen and hundreds of local non-profits across the United States. These events across North America will welcome thousands of walkers of all ages.
However, health and government officials have recommended that events with large gatherings be postponed. We feel it is our duty to be proactive in protecting the health and safety of our volunteers, families, and our local communities.
For these reasons, We Walk Together 2020 events have been postponed until further notice. Towards the end of April, we will reassess the situation to make further decisions.
Online fundraising will resume when events are rescheduled.
On behalf of all of us at BAPS Charities, we thank you for your understanding, and beyond all, your recognition of the power each of us has to save lives.

Canton Community Foundation
Community foundations make up one of the fastest-growing sectors of philanthropy in the United States today. They build and strengthen communities by making it possible for a wide range of donors to participate in creating permanent (and often named) funds to meet present and future needs. Community foundations have become catalysts for improvement within urban centers and in rural settings through philanthropy that is visionary, diverse and inclusive. They are a sustainable aspect of philanthropy — providing leadership and problem-solving in the present, and preparing for the future with a permanent endowment. There are nearly 700 community foundations in the United States, more than 90 of which are in Michigan alone. The community foundation model has spread throughout the world. There are at least 470 community foundations in 41 countries outside the United States, with at least another 140 in development around the world.
