FULTON, NY – The American Red Cross is encouraging walkers of all ages to come and join in a walk to help support local Red Cross services.
On Sept. 27 the third annual Bridges to Caring Walk will take place beginning and ending at the Fulton Price Chopper.
As part of the event there is a coloring contest for local youngsters, a rewards program for all walkers along with raffles, food and fun for all.
Walkers can choose to walk once around the loop for one and a half miles or twice around for a healthy three mile walk.
The rewards program allows participants to earn prizes based on their pledges and donations turned in.
Pre-registration is encouraged with all pre-registrants receiving a T-shirt as well as being entered into a raffle for a ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œHealthy Living Gift BasketÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â valued at more than $300.
The coloring contest, sponsored by Pathfinder Bank, will award two lucky children with savings bonds.
