Created in memory of a young Narragansett special education teacher and survivor of childhood cancer who was killed by a drunk driver at the age of 24, the Foundation aspires to make her dream of providing dance therapy to fragile children a reality.

Walkers are invited to gather family and friends to form a team! Walk in honor of an organization, or in memory of someone special, raising funds to benefit fragile children with cancer and special needs.

The WALK begins and ends at Rodgers Recreation Center, Salve Regina University. Visit for more information and to register for free!

$500 prize for Top Pledge Raising TEAM to donate to their favorite charitable organization!

Fun for the whole family!
