Plan Now to “Walk, Roll, Shobble, Stroll*” with us in September!


Summer is a wonderful and relaxing time to enjoy friends and family, and we hope you are having lots of fun! It is also a good time to start thinking about Fall family activities, and we hope you will consider joining us for our fourth annual family fundraising event and picnic, “Walk, Roll, Shobble*, Stroll for Children with Special Needs”! This year’s event will be held on Sunday, September 25th, from noon – 3pm (rain or shine) at the Nature Trail on the grounds of the Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children (formerly Massachusetts Hospital School), 3 Randolph Street, Canton, MA.

This is a fun and easy way to support the Federation and here is how you can participate! This is a “free” event in that there is no registration fee required. We do 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!

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. There are two ways to register! Visit to register online. Or simply fill out the registration form and mail it to us at the address provided!

We hope to see you there!
