It’s time to plan for the 2014 Walkathon Fundraiser “Walk So They May Ride”

Posted on Aug 28, 2014

The Pawling Resource Center has been an essential part of life for many community members since 1976, as it provides vital support services much needed in Pawling. The Walk So The May Ride walkathon is one of its most important fundraisers. Have a heart and do your part so that “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” includes you, either as a volunteer walker or as a sponsor. This year the event will take place on:

Saturday, Oct. 4th at 8:30 AM

The walk begins at the Pawling Resource Center and continues through the village, as sponsored volunteer participants raise awareness for the 501 C registered not-for-profit charity, and provide financial support from pledged donations.

Walkers, and the people who underwrite their personal sponsorships, directly impact the many services offered by the Pawling Resource Center. They will…

…Walk so that clients may continue to ride to medical appointments and to the grocery store. [556 rides provided to neighbors in 2013]

…Walk so that folks in need may continue to have access to a well-stocked food pantry. [1452 neighbors served in 2013]

…Walk so that community members may continue to have access to special medical equipment. [139 neighbors served in 2013]

…Walk so our neighbors may continue to have access to many other programs, such as blood pressure screening, grief counseling, holiday baskets, and more.

We encourage all to save the date, to plan to participate and to be part of a wonderful event that is so important to the success of the Pawling Resource Center. The event will take place rain or shine, so plan to wear comfortable and appropriate clothing and shoes. There will be an Open House with refreshments following the event. For more information or to register for the event, or to learn how you can volunteer or sponsor a walker, please call Program Coordinator Terry Ariano at the Pawling Resource Center at 855-3459, or email terry@pawlingresourcecenter.org.
