2nd Annual Project Footprints Walk slated for Oct. 12

Thursday, October 3, 2019

The  2nd Annual Project Footprints Walk sponsored by Aaqua Drilling, Inc., will be held Oct. 12.  Entry fee is $20 and includes breakfast and a t-shirt.

Registration forms can be found at Bank of Joliet, Joliet Foods, Joliet Community Center and on the Project Footprints Facebook Page.

Registration (for those not already registered) is between 8 a.m. -8:30 a.m. with the walk starting immediately afterwards.  

The Walk is to raise funds for Project Footprints in support of its mission to serve individuals and families in Carbon County impacted by emergency situations.

 The walk begins at Joliet Community Center and follows a challenging 3.5 mile loop up Cole Creek Road and through the Grill subdivision, before returning to the starting line. 

Breakfast will be served at the Joliet Community Center from 8 a.m. – 11 a.m. by the Joliet Lions Club and available to those not walking by donation. 

Morgan McQuillan, six-time cancer survivor, founded The Project Footprint in 2018 after she received so much encouragement and support from the Carbon County community. She wanted to find a way to say thank you, as well as pass the love and support she has received on to others.  To date, Project Footprints has provided financial assistance to 6 different local families for varied emergency situations, from car accidents to the loss of a family member to a hospitalized child.  

Project Footprints also distributes handmade personalized throw blankets to provide comfort and let those individuals who find themselves in an emergency situation know that this community cares about them and their wellbeing.

The 2nd Annual Project Footprints Walk, sponsored by Aaqua Drilling, Inc, is the organization’s largest fundraiser.   All funds raised stay in Carbon County to help those impacted by emergency situations.
