Calvary Captain Countdown – 4 Days Until the Walkathon!

Samantha Custer first got involved with Calvary as a Life Skills volunteer. A member of the Georgetown Women in International Affairs, she co-led the group’s participation in Friday Fun Activities. “GWIA has an established relationship with Calvary from our volunteering last year and we were excited to help in additional ways. The Walkathon seems like a fun and meaningful way to do so.” So far, the GWIA team has 20 walkers and has raised almost $1,500 for Calvary through the Walkathon!

She has two goals for this year’s Walkathon “Mobilizing student and faculty walkers from Georgetown to support achieving Calvary’s goals,” and of course, “to enjoy time walking with other volunteers and women from the shelter.”

If you’re interested in learning Indonesian, come find her at the Walkathon on November 19!  “I lived in Jakarta, Indonesia for five years and speak Indonesian but alas there aren’t many people to practice with here in DC.”
