Upcoming Event—Kids Walk—Sat. 5/6

The Kids Walk for Kids with Cancer is described as “an upbeat, family friendly walkathon that supports pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. ” The Walk was started in 2001 by Sophie Staples, a student at the Packer Collegiate Institute, and since then, more than $4,000,000 have been raised for cancer research.  Over 70 schools participated in 2016, totaling more than 2,500 walkers.
