We are encouraging teams, individual walkers or runners to also dress to the theme “Green and anything in – between” for a chance to win a prize.

Later On…
After the walk there will be pizza, hot dogs, bottled water and music will be provided. Bands will play in Coughlan’s Pub & 41 West until 7pm; we will also have a Chinese Auction that supporters can purchase tickets.

Proceeds will benefit the RO Foundation and their mission; assist patients and families with unexpected travel expenses. Also benefiting will be the family of Ashley Gagola, Ashley has a rare disease that has put a financial burden on this single mother and is deeply in need of some assistance. And also the Patrick K. Coughlin scholarship fund.

The RO Foundation has also chosen a cause close to a Board member that will benefit from this event, the Rural Ministries.

Along with local media coverage, we hope to have news stations from Buffalo & Erie and attract approximately 700 people.
