We are walking in the 2015 Walk for MA Children which begins in Boston on April 30 2015 and ends in Pittsfield, MA on May 9. This is a state-wide fundraiser where each day of the 10-day walk is sponsored by a child or family-focused nonprofit. The first day will be sponsored by Boston CASA. All the funds we raise will go directly to Boston CASA which recruits, trains and supports volunteers who advocate for the best interest of children who are abused and neglected.
Anne Harvey Kilburn and Paige Brodie, both volunteer CASAs, Betsy Brown, friend of Paige and the Executive Director of Boston CASA, Charles Lerner, are all walking on Day One. Anne is doing the first 4 days of the Walk and the final day to Pittsfield. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join the walk. No need to sign up. If you're interested, we can send you details on where to show up and how long each day's walk is.
We appreciate your support, your love, and your openness to learning more about how CASAs make a huge difference in vulnerable children's lives! Nick Kristof and Cheryl DuWunn's in their latest book, "A Path Appears," say, "...those who are succesful need to understand that the root cause of their achievements isn't just hard work and innate intelligence but also often luck in the lottery of birth followed by a supportive middle-class upbringing."
Let's all do what we can to lift up vulnerable children. Thank you!
