The 2nd annual Honor Guard Walk is scheduled for Saturday, October 28 at 8:30am.
The Honor Guard at Fortress is comprised of a group of men and women who believe that God can use their presence, prayers, and financial contributions to alter the course of the lives of the kids who live in Near Southeast Fort Worth. We're currently seeking 100 men and women like you to join the Honor Guard. The commitment is simple: Show up. Walk. Pray. Give.
Show Up: Join us on October 28 at 8:30am at Fortress (712 E Stella St) for breakfast, your tshirt, and an opening prayer. From there, we'll transport everyone by charter bus to Evans Plaza.
Walk: We will start the walk at Evans Plaza after hearing from our keynote speaker. As a group of individuals unified in our belief that God has big plans for the kids growing up in the Near Southeast neighborhood, we'll march one mile from Evans Plaza to Fortress.
Pray: We will cover the neighborhood in prayer as we walk. We'll pass historic sites, the Hazel Harvey Peace Center for Neighborhoods, the elementary school where the majority of Fortress students attend, and finally arrive at Fortress.
Give: At the end of the walk, we will be welcomed back to Fortress by some of our kids who will be privileged to shake the hand of each member of the Honor Guard. What a blessing for these young men and women to see firsthand the number of people who believe in them and their potential.
One hundred of you giving $1,000 = $100,000 raised for Fortress in one day.
But more than that, 100 men like you showing up in our neighborhood for our kids = immeasurable hope for the next 364 days.
