BENEFITING: Foster Care Alumni Of America
EVENT: BOSTON AREA, MA FOSTER WALK
EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016
REMINDER: Only 30 days left for our Boston Area FosterWalk https://www.facebook.com/events/193793447646403. We are raising funds for Education Scholarships http://www.fostercarealumni.org/…/scholarship-fund-for-alum… and Animal Therapy with http://www.cultivatecounselingcenter.com for our Alumni. Only 3% of former fosters graduate from college and we all suffer from some sort of anxiety, PTSD and/or depression so we are working to change this. Our goal is $5,000 and we are almost at the halfway mark at 44%. Please consider donating to one of our teams, or join one of our teams by clicking on Register or create your own team on this link https://www.crowdrise.com/BOSTONMAFOSTERWALK to help us meet our goal.

The effects can last a lifetime. The FosterWalks are part of a national campaign to build awareness of child abuse, its lifelong effects, and inspiration for healing. By joining our FosterWalk events, it benefits our chapters and helps support personal and professional growth for foster care alumni. Funds raised empower foster care alumni to overcome patterns of trauma through peer support, leadership development and advocacy.
