Join in the “Big Give” this Month!

The “Big Give” fundraiser is our chance to help support America’s Walking Club in a big way, and it is happening this month!  Last year over $91,000.00 was raised for AVA, and the funds were greatly appreciated and were put to good use.    

The Big Give website will open on September 15th for early giving.  The website is  On the site, search for and select “AVA: America’s Walking Club,” and then fill out the online form.

You may also donate via check now through October 31st by sending a check to the AVA National Office.

But the exciting part of the fundraiser is the online “Big Give” that starts at 6:00 pm on Thursday, September 22nd, and goes through Friday, September 23rd, at 6:00 pm.  During this window, there will be specific “Match Minutes” which will provide the opportunity for your donation to be doubled.  More detailed information on this can be found on the Match Minutes page on the Big Give website.

You can also check out this page on the AVA website for more information.

This is our opportunity to contribute to AVA’s mission of health and wellness. When you think of all the health benefits of staying active and being out in nature, you know it’s a cause worth supporting!
