During a recent interview on the Charlie Butler Show, I met State Farm agent, Paul Watzlavik. He was on the show to discuss all of the services that State Farm offers homeowners. But in an off mic discussion, I found out the Paul is involved in Walking For Dreams Evansville Family & Pet Walk in downtown Evansville. I loved everything he was saying and wanted to become involved.

Walking for Dreams began in Indianapolis in 2004. The walk expanded to include Evansville in 2016 by Paul and his wife. They thought that Evansville charities needed this amazing way to make money. The amazing part about it is that all of the 26 charities involved get to keep 100% of the money that they collect. The program partners foot the bill for the walk so that the charities have no overhead cost for the event.

Here is a list of the local charities that are involved this year!

  • Alzheimer Association
  • Another Chance For Animals
  • Brysons TOT10
  • Courtstrong
