Westfield High School "A Mile in your Shoes: A Walk for Change"

Date: May 19, 2012
Location: Westfield High School
Time: 9:30 am
Cost: $5 registration fee or raise at least $5 in donations (pledges)

Westfield WHS will host the second annual community walk. "A Mile in your Shoes: A Walk for Change'" will begin at WHS at 9:30. It will be followed by a cookout at Westfield High School. This 2 or 5 mile walk, beginning and ending at Westfield High School, will serve as a community building event as well as a fundraiser for the Kinship Fund and for future Social Justice programming.

We have students who have been abandoned by their caretakers and who find themselves homeless. School is home for them, school is their solid ground, at school people care, and so these young people want to have the opportunity to stay, to learn, to be cared for and to graduate.  

Registration and pledge forms will be available on the WHS website in the beginning of April at If you cannot attend, but would like to support the cause we are accepting monetary donations and raffle prizes. Please make checks payable to WHS Kinship Fund and mail to Westfield High School c/o Alison Kelly.

Please contact Alison Kelly at with questions or if you would like to donate a raffle prize or food item for the cookout. We hope to see you there!
