MOUNT VERNON — Starting Point will host its 25th Annual Walk on Saturday.

This annual fundraising event is one of the organization’s primary sources of revenue. Starting Point’s entire funding comes from individuals, businesses and churches. The walk will be held at Starting Point’s 11 Woodlake Trail, Mount Vernon, location.

Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 10. The goal is to raise $57,000 in pledges.
Grilled hot dogs, ice cream, pizza and chips will be provided.

A Remodel Open House will follow the walk from 11:15 a.m. to noon. This open house is open to both walkers and non-walkers.

All services to clients of Starting Point are provided at no cost to them by caring staff and trained volunteers and are completely confidential.
