Family Matters' 26th Annual Walk-a-thon will take place on Saturday, May 16. Fueled by Family Matters children and families, donors, volunteers, and staff and board members, this community-building event raises funds for Family Matters' after-school and evening tutoring programs. The event culminates in a celebratory picnic at Gale Park, provided to participants free of charge.
I have served as a board member for almost 6 years now. I am deeply committed to support the ongoing programs that reach deeply into the lives and families of children in Chicago's North of Howard community. Family Matters uniquely characterized by the prinicples of leadership: positive thinking and language, peaceful conflict resoutiona nd choices and consequences. These priniciples guide everything that we do as an organization.
The walk-a-thon is a fun family friendly event and is one of our most important fundraisers. Your generous support will fund our tutoring, after-school, and teen programs in which 275 children, youth and family members participate. Please consider joinging my team or making a donation to support us.
Thank you for supporting Family Matters!
