The ninth annual walkathon, Walk So They May Ride, for the benefit of the Pawling Resource Center’s transportation program will be held Saturday, September 17th, with registration beginning at 9:00 a.m. at the resource center located at 126 East Main Street in Pawling.   This symbolic walk, which circuits through the Village of Pawling, is a fun and healthy way to increase awareness of the PRC’s services, and especially to raise funds to sustain and grow their programs.

The Pawling Resource Center’s signature programs have expanded and strengthened throughout the years due to increased community wide support. In 2015 the center provided 981 rides to medical appointments, made food assistance available to 1260 households, loaned 238 items of medical equipment, and offered 130 rides to grocery shop and to the PRC food pantry.

Interest in sponsoring your company team of walkers or an individual walker may be directed to Terry Ariano, Program Coordinator at the Resource Center, by calling the center at 855-3459. Walkers interested in participating in this year’s event may also contact the center at the above number.

Following this year’s Walkathon, the Pawling Resource Center will hold its 40th Anniversary Celebration at Lake Side Park beginning at 3p.m. This celebration is open to the Pawling Community and will serve to honor and thank all those who have made the Pawling Resource Center a beacon of light and hope for those in need within the community.
