2017 CT Walk for Haiti
EVENT DATE: Apr 01, 2017
On April 1, 2017 CT Walks for Haiti will sponsor its 8th annual 2.5 mile walkathon through West Hartford Center and Blue Back Square. Everybody's favorite weatherman Joe Furey will join us for a festival of Haitian food, crafts, music and a silent auction featuring an awesome Red Sox package!
