Riverside is scheduled to hold its fourth annual Walk To End Homelessness April 8 at Fairmount Park.
More than 300 people are expected to participate in the event, which raises money for programs that help homeless people move to stable housing and find employment, according to a statement on the city’s website.
City officials hope to raise $35,000 this year.
“The Walk to End Homelessness gives Riversiders an opportunity to support the efforts to reduce homelessness underway in our community, and to love our neighbors without homes,” Mayor Rusty Bailey said in the statement. “Our City is mobilizing a responsible, compassionate, and thoughtful approach to this national issue that impacts everyone in our city.”
Registration will begin at 7 a.m., with the two-mile walk scheduled to begin at 8:15 a.m. near the bandshell in the southeast corner of the park. Cost is $30 for adults, $20 for students with a valid student ID and $5 for anyone under 18 years old.
Fairmount Park is 2601 Fairmount Blvd. in downtown Riverside.
