January – Women’s Winter Walks

Women's Winter Walks: Sign up today to get paired with a buddy for weekly socially distanced walks.

by Becky Wennlund, Event Team Leader

This event has passed.

Open Doors for Refugees seeks female volunteers to walk once a week with an amazing newcomer woman (and possibly her kids) for three consecutive months: January, February, and March 2021.
Walks start the week of January 4th!

There are many benefits:

  1. Make new friends; your walking partner and possibly all of her family.
  2. Get out of the house regularly in winter.
  3. Help your walking partner practice English.
  4. Learn about her home and culture, and teach her yours.
  5. Learn and share new walking routes in Madison neighborhoods and parks.

Please complete this form by December 21st, 2020, and we will contact you with more information via email.

**Please note that there may be more volunteers than walking partners; we will do our best to pair you with a partner but this form is not a guarantee.

Please encourage interested friends to sign up too.

Thank you for helping make Madison a welcoming community!
