From the Executive Director

Richard J. Robison, FCSN Executive DirectorThis time of year is when parents begin thinking about Fall activities, and we hope you will consider joining us for our fifth annual family fundraiser, “Walk, Roll, Shobble*, Stroll”! This outdoors event is a great (and inclusive!) opportunity for family and friends to come together for a good cause. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, October 1st, from noon – 3pm at the Nature Trail on the grounds of the Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children (formerly Massachusetts Hospital School), 3 Randolph Street, Canton, MA.

Attendees will enjoy an afternoon of face painting, dancing, and craft activities, and we even have a troupe of “superheroes” who will join in the fun!. Bring a picnic lunch – the Federation will provide snacks, chips, drinks and treats. Beginning at 1:30pm, the group will enjoy a relaxing stroll through the hospital’s scenic walking trails.

This is a free event – there is no registration fee required. We do ask each walker to register through FirstGiving and pledge to raise $100; that’s just 10 friends who will each “sponsor” you as a walker at $10 each! Or put together a team of walkers, and enjoy the afternoon in the company of friends.

Join Federation staff and other families for a great day of activities, food, music, games and prizes (and of course the Walk!) all to support children with special needs and those who care for them.
