2nd Annual Rhode Island Walk from Obesity Event!


October 8, 2011


Slater Memorial Park CarouselNewport Avenue, Pawtucket, RI

This is our 2nd year! Last year our goal was to raise $5,000...we raised over $12,000 and made the TOP 10 State Nationwide!!! Let's make the TOP 9 this year!!!

Register online ($25) at http://walkfromobesity.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=d onorDrive.eventDetails&eventID=545

Onsite registration ($35) begins at 10:00 AM ...
Walk begins 11:00 AM

The walk is approximately 3 miles beside the Ten Mile River, at a lush green park setting. This is a participation ONLY event. No need to walk the entire length!

Activities include: Vendor tables, Free tickets and rides on the Loofe Carousel, Raffle prizes, the RI National Guard Rock Climbing wall, Pitching Tent, Dancing, Kid's games & Free Face Painting!

We will have several vendor tables so be sure to check out their products and services!

Check out this year's new incentives for fundraising! Any individual who raises $1,000 or more receives a prize and gets entered into the National Raffles!

Make your own group or join someone elses'. You can still raise individual funds even if you are a part of a group!
Live too far or unavailable to attend the event? Please contact me for more information on how you can volunteer time, services and products or donate to our cause! Even $5.00 can help!

Thanks and Keep Living Life!
