On Saturday, March 4, 2023, Sai Spiritual Education (SSE) students of the Sri Sathya Sai Center of North Houston spent an invigorating day in the sun as they walked for a good cause – collecting cans of food for a local shelter. About 21 participants, primarily SSE children of all age groups, walked around the beautiful Kickerillo Mischer Preserve. Cheered on and accompanied by teachers and parents, the children walked the 1.7-mile trail, and some even completed a second lap. Due to their efforts, 150 cans of food were donated by adults, which were then transported to a local homeless shelter. The SSE children were also rewarded with juice, snacks, and other refreshments at the end of each lap. The challenge did not daunt younger children, and they gamely rode their bikes and scooters to keep up with their older peers.

An Easter Egg hunt, with a twist, followed the walk. Instead of containing candy, each egg had an insightful quote. The children and their teacher discussed the quotes, their meanings, and how to apply them in daily life.
