Walking for a Cause

Posted on March 25, 2011


As warm weather approaches, charity walks are becoming more and more popular. They are a wonderful chance for you to stay fit, meet new people, and help a cause you care about. April, May, and June can be considered “charity walk” months, there are a number of opportunities in Boston and surrounding areas for you to become involved. The Mayor’s Health Line has compiled a list of walks/races for you to take a look at. Let us know if we missed any, and we will be happy to add them to the list.
