WHY WE WALK?
Because The Need is Great in our Neighborhood

The Augustinian Defenders of the Rights of the Poor (ADROP) and the Methodist Hospital Foundation have jointly been stalwart in efforts to improve health care and education in our community, but still too many fail to get the services they need. Our goal with this Annual Walk is to shine a light on those that are marginalized, and with your help, become a beacon for change that will positively impact the disadvantaged in our own backyard.  JOIN US!

Constance came to Philadelphia from Indonesia. A refugee who fled her country following the devastation caused by the 2004 tsunami, she takes nothing for granted and works two jobs to provide for her family. When she needed medical attention for an infection that would not go away, Constance knew her new home and its people would be her salvation. She turned to the primary care Unity Clinic of (ADROP). There, Constance found testing and a diagnosis through the volunteer interpreters, doctors, nurse practitioners and phlebotomists. With the support of the Methodist Hospital Foundation and Methodist Hospital, the lab work for these tests were covered as were the medicines that made her well.

You have the power to change and save so many lives. Join your voice with us and make a difference today.

Walkers Made An Impact!

Saturday, June 3, 2017 — more than 50 walkers stepped off from the National Shrine of St. Rita of Cascia to raise awareness and money in support of the underserved in South Philadelphia.  One mile later, they arrived at the Methodist Hospital Health Expo, joining hundreds of people in free health screenings, food and family entertainment.  The purpose of our Walk was to support the efforts of the Augustinian Defenders of the Rights of the Poor (ADROP) and the Methodist Hospital Foundation to educate and provide primary healthcare services to those who cannot afford medical care.
