It was a beautiful, sunny day; the perfect weather for teams to come out and support this worthy cause. Some made it a family affair and had their children walk alongside of them. Other children rode their bikes and scooters, while still others rode comfortably in their baby carriages. Some walkers, like the Peterson family, brought their canine friends. One impressive young lady named Elizabeth Parson ran the 5-mile trail. She inspired and motivated us all to keep walking and meet the 5-mile challenge!
We want to thank everyone who walked and donated their time and resources. We also want to thank all of our volunteers who helped put this walk-a-thon together. We could not have done it without their support! We would also like to recognize our very own Nargis Karampurwala, a member of our Cooking Matters CT Team. Her dedication and support to the KHAIR program is greatly appreciated.
The team that raised the most money was the “Walking on Sunshine” team, comprised of CHNCT’s own ICM Department. They raised $1,100 and have won a pizza party, sponsored by our friends at Primo Pizza and Oakdale Pizza in Wallingford.
Thank you all for KHAIRing! See you NEXT YEAR!
