In less than one week the Annual Children’s Friend Walk and Run will happen—and the 7-day forecast shows the day to be warm and sunny. Staff teams have been hard at work raising money by holding creative and fun events and contests. My team, Ewok This Way (Hartford/Manton sites) will likely hit the $3,000 mark by the time festivities begin this Saturday! Our fundraising has included: a raffle for Phantom of the Opera tickets, The Great Hartford Bake Off, Spare Change Challenge, Mystery Box Silent Auction, and a raffle for a flat screen TV, Echo Input, and Google Chromecast. We have been busy! Believe it or not, we’ve already started to plan for next year!
If you haven’t registered for the Walk yet, you can do so HERE. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the Temple To Music at Roger Williams Park this Saturday at 9:00 am.
