ATLANTA, Ga., (October 17, 201) – On October 23, 2011, over 7,000 are expected to walk to end global poverty in the 17th annual Partnership Walk at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta. The Atlanta Partnership Walk is an initiative of Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A (AKF USA) to raise awareness and funds that reduce poverty, hunger, illiteracy and poor health in Africa and Asia.
Atlanta’s 2010 Walk raised over $1,300,000 and is expected to raise more this year. 100% of the funds raised at Partnership Walk go directly to projects sponsored by the Foundation; not a cent is spent on administration.
