Larry McAlpine Hoover Walk 2020

Walk with Larry in 2020! Pam McAlpine and a team of committed friends are planning to celebrate Larry’s life by continuing the Hoover Walk in partnership with World Hope International. Show your support by walking, giving, and inviting others to join the cause.

In 2003, Larry McAlpine began what became fondly referred to as “The Hoover Walk,” dedicating his August 5th birthday to walking for water and inviting others to join him and fundraise for a cause.

Although Larry passed away in 2017 after a long and hard-fought battle with cancer, his family and friends have continued to follow in his footsteps and walk each year on his birthday. Today, they are extending that invitation to everyone to join the walk for water in person or by making a gift.

Larry cared deeply about clean water and, during his lifetime, was able to invest in 54 wells in five countries thanks to sponsorships he collected for walking. Donations to the walk will continue to go to World Hope International’s clean water efforts.

The walk will take place on August 5th at Union Cross Park in  Winston-Salem, NC. The park currently only allows 25 people to congregate because of COVID-19. Details will be updated if anything changes. Supporters are encouraged to walk in their own neighborhoods due to social distancing needs.

Larry loved life, loved people, walked with God, and brought hundreds on his journey. I am praying there will be many who follow in his footsteps.
