Rain or Shine!


In Rhode Island we know the weather can turn on a dime!  One minute the sun is out and its 70 degrees and the next its 40 degrees and raining.  Springtime weather is unpredictable.  I’ve just checked the long-term forecast for this Saturday: Partly cloudy, mid-50s. It sounds about right for a Saturday in April, but come rain or shine, cool or warm; we’ll be ready for our 13th Annual Children’s Friend Walk & Run sponsored by Panera Bread.

We are on track for a very successful fundraising effort.  Volunteers, community organizations and businesses have all rallied once again to support the most vulnerable children and families in Rhode Island.  Staff have held their own fundraisers to support the Walk & Run: Paint and Vino, Pick ‘n Pop, Bake Sales, International Themed Buffets, Flower-Grams, Sundae Socials, each event more successful than the last and creating great energy among our staff.

It’s never too late to join the fun.  Sign up (HERE) or join us Saturday morning.  Everyone is welcome and there will be no need to check the weather forecast…we walk and run, rain OR shine!
