Plan Now to “Walk, Roll, Shobble*, Stroll”

With summer upon us the fall and a new school year are probably the furthest things from your mind. But here at the Federation, we are already hard at work planning our annual Family Fun Walk, “Walk, Roll, Shobble*, Stroll for Children with Special Needs”. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, September 21st, from noon – 3pm (rain or shine) at the Nature Trail on the grounds of the Massachusetts Hospital School, 3 Randolph Street, Canton, MA.

Last year’s event (our first ever walk!) was a huge success, raising over $14,000 to support the Federation’s work! We hope you will join us this year, and help us meet this year’s fundraising goal of $20,000!

This is a fun and easy way to support the Federation, and here is how you can participate! We ask each walker to commit to raising $100; that’s just 10 friends who will each “sponsor” you as a walker at $10 each! Or put together a team of walkers, with each team member committed to raising $100!

So plan now to put together a team of family, friends, and colleagues, and come join Federation staff and other families for a great day of networking, family activities, food, music, games and prizes (and of course the Walk!) all to support children with special needs and their families. Registration is open now! Visit www.fcsn.org for more details.

*Shobble: “when a shuffle meets a hobble” (Definition by Chelsey Kendig, self-advocate)
