On the Track








Update: Our Walkathon was a great success and much fun.  Thanks to all who walked and who supported the team!  Some of the donations are still being counted so we don’t have a total yet but we know we are really close to our $3000 goal for CCLM.

We thank you for being our partner in mission and for your support of the October 3rd LSS Community Care Walkathon to fight poverty. San Bernardino County walkers will meet and walk at San Bernardino High School with a BBQ to follow at Central City Lutheran Mission. Three teams, representing the LSS Community Centers of Big Bear, Running Springs, and CCLM in San Bernardino will walk together.

To register as a walker or support a walker with a donation, go to our CCLM Mission Marcher event page.

Here is the San Bernardino Walkathon registration form in pdf.

Who’s participating?

Anyone who wants to join our team, “Mission Marchers”, can walk. Here is a little information about some of our initial team members and the programs that will be supported by walkers and supporter donations.

Men who live at the Mission maintain the property and the spirit of helpfulness.

Resident Walkers – men who live and work at the mission in the shelter and transitional house, maintaining the property, sorting and inventorying donations for the kitchen, shelter, houses, and thrift store, preparing bags of food for grocery distribution, running the computer lab, and a variety of work without which CCLM does not operate. Also men and women from our supportive housing program.
