Ab's Walk

Abraham's Walk
Sunday, January 22nd
Noon to 5 pm
Iowa City

A multireligious and multiethnic group in Iowa City and the surrounding community is planning a six-mile walk between five centers on Sunday, January 22. The goal is to celebrate diversity within our community, and all are welcome to participate. Walkers will assemble at noon at the Robert A. Lee Recreation Center, 220 S Gilbert St, Iowa City. A brief kick-off event will take place, then walkers will be on the move by 12:30 pm, walking to Hillel House for a short program there beginning at 1:00, then down Market St. to the IMU for a short program by the Muslim Student Association at 2:00, then along Park Street and up Grand to the LNACC for their short program at 3:00, and finally, heading over to St. Rafael for their program beginning at 4:15. People will finish up there by 5:00.

Why Abraham's Walk?

Known as "the Friend," Abraham is still remembered for his legendary welcome and kindness toward strangers, a tradition alive to this day in the Middle East and across the world. We will talk and learn. We will share food, music and stories with members of our colorful and diverse community.

The event will be a manifestation of our equal humanity, of decency, compassion, empathy and willingness to help when any of us face dangers in everyday situations.

The walk will underscore our unified quest for a safe supportive community.

Organized by:
PSR Iowa
Saint Raphael Orthodox Church
