Calvary Captain Countdown – 26 days until the Walkathon!

Last week, we started off the Calvary Captain Countdown with a first-time walker. Today, we’re bringing you the story of a seasoned Walkathon veteran:

This is Tabitha Beck’s 9th year participating in the Walkathon for Calvary. She first learned about the Walkathon through an insider connection – she knows Heather Laing, Calvary’s Development Director. When Tabitha moved to DC, Heather asked her to participate, and she has been walking ever since!

Why does Tabitha continue to walk year after year?  “The Walkathon is a way for everyone who cares about homelessness in DC to join together to show their solidarity in helping people in need get on the path to self-sufficiency.”

Tabitha is also well-informed on the challenges that many of the women at Calvary face. “I’m involved in anti-poverty work in my day job, so I know the statistics and know that homelessness continues to be an issue across the country, but especially in DC. Calvary’s work against homelessness is successful. They understand that the women they help need a hand up, not a hand out.” She is also an income tax assistance volunteer, helping low-income families prepare their income taxes for free during tax season.

She’s is also a bit of a celebrity among the Calvary Captains: “Last year I had such great support from my friends, family, and coworkers, I was the top fundraiser among volunteers! I was happy to be able to help out Calvary as much as possible.”

And Tabitha plans on defending her title this year as top volunteer fundraiser… Take a look at her Walkathon page (here) and help her reach her goal!
