Spring is finally in the air on this beautiful, sunny Monday morning and though it’s still a bit chilly out, our Annual Walk & Run is right around the corner. Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 5, 2018 for a morning of fun at Roger Williams Park Temple to Music.
Each year, our staff members are a major component in making our 5K Walk & Run sponsored by Panera Bread such a success. Staff fundraising begins in February at our all staff meeting and the momentum carries us through right to the event.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank our staff team captains who have stepped up this year to lead our sites and send a huge shout out to our staff who have developed some creative fundraisers in addition to the amazing work they do every day.
The theme of this year’s winning t-shirt design is: “We Walk So Our Children Can Fly”. I definitely see the truth in this statement, especially as the fundraising totals (and the healthy competition) grows each week for our staff teams. Our staff truly give it their all for the children and families we serve and I cannot thank them enough for finding that little bit of extra time this spring to devote to the Walk. It’s all for a great cause – all proceeds support Children’s Friend programs.
