– On the third Sunday in October each year, the Upper Delaware Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (UDUUF) hosts its Bud Rue Walk for Social Justice.
Started in 1993 by the late Bud Rue, the walk has now raised over $62,000, which has been distributed to local organizations that work for social justice.
This year’s walk will be held on Oct. 20 and steps off from the Berlin Township Community Center in Beach Lake at noon.
All funds raised will be shared equally among Sullivan and Wayne Habitat for Humanity, Wayne County’s Victims Intervention Program (VIP) and Sullivan County’s Rape Intervention Services & Education (RISE).
These organizations were selected based upon financial need and the services they provide to our communities in New York and Pennsylvania. Each recipient group provides additional walkers, and the event is a great opportunity to meet other community members engaged in social justice issues.
The walk is an easy five mile stroll along back roads in Beach Lake, beginning and ending at the Community Center.
A sweep car continually drives the route, and walkers can choose to leave at any point. An abundant potluck meal is provided by the Fellowship for all participants.
Those wishing to participate are encouraged to visit www.uduuf.org for a pledge sheet. Donations can be mailed to: UDUUF, P.O. Box 140, Narrowsburg, NY 12764.
