Walk for Peace – Sat. May 6, 2017

Help us raise $1,000 for our World Peace Temple.  We’ll go on a beautiful hike, then have a picnic lunch and guided meditation.

Join us for an energizing 4.5-mile* hike through one of the Baltimore area’s beautiful parks. At the same time help raise money for the KMC-MD temple and the International Temples Project. Either gather sponsors or pay a registration fee of $25. The walk will end with a delicious picnic and guided meditation dedicated to World Peace. Last year we raised over $800. Our goal with this event is to raise $1000. Help us cross the finish line!

*There will also be shorter hiking route options for those who cannot complete a 4.5 mile route.

Time:  10am-1:30pm.  We recommend arriving early (about 9:30am) to find parking

Picnic Shelter 217
Patapsco Valley State Park – Hilton Area
1101 Hilton Avenue, Catonsville, MD 21228

To enter the Hilton area, there is a small fee of $3 per person.
There is a one-way loop through the park. Our picnic shelter is 217 and is the last shelter on the left at the far end of the loop.  We recommend that you bring a water bottle and snacks for during the hike, as it is a longer hike.  There is more information about the park here: click this link.
Parking: the best place is one of the lots about halfway around the loop (there is also an extra lot that is your first right once you enter the park, but it is further from the shelter). There is limited parking on Saturdays so we recommend carpooling and getting there early (9 or 9:30am) to find a spot.
Dogs are allowed, but on leash and not in playground.
There is a great playground and a fun recycled tire playground that’ll likely be finished by the time of our walk.
