The Friends of the Poor®Walk/Run is a national event coordinated by the Development Team of the National Council of the United States of St. Vincent de Paul.

It began as a national program with the purpose of providing the local Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) Conferences and Councils the additional funds to help support their special works projects.

Growing every year, the Friends of the Poor®Walk/Run had another great year in 2014! Attracting over 25,000 walkers, raising over $2.8 million, and having events at 247 different locations across the United States were all measures of success.
