The Story

EVENT DATE: May 16, 2015

 

Family Matters' 26th Annual Walk-a-thon will take place on Saturday, May 16. Fueled by Family Matters children and families, donors, volunteers, and staff and board members, this community-building event raises funds for Family Matters' after-school and evening tutoring programs. The event culminates in a celebratory picnic at Gale Park, provided to participants free of charge.

The Walk-a-thon is such an important fundraiser, supporting our tutoring, after-school, and teen programs in which 275 children, youth and family members participate. Please consider forming a team, setting a fundraising goal, and asking friends and family to donate to your walk. 

If you can't join us on May 16th, please consider doing your own "virtual walk." Commit to walking 5 miles on your own and set up your own fundraising page via the "join the event" button. 

Please email Gretchen at gretchen@familymatterschicago.org with any questions.

Thank you for supporting Family Matters!
