North Adams, MA – BFAIR is excited to announce the 3rd Annual Walk for Independence on Saturday, June 23, kicking-off at 10am.  A stroll to Cheshire and back (or any distance in between), The Walk will be a fundraising event that the BFAIR participants, community members, and sponsors can enthusiastically get involved in through sponsored walking, lunch, bucket raffles, and music by Harminy Entertainment.    Starting and finishing at the Adams Visitor’s Center, the Walk is a day of fun and helps BFAIR share our mission: to enrich the lives of people of all ages and abilities by providing positive life experiences and advocacy through distinctive, individualized, quality services. 

As a local non-profit, BFAIR relies on public funds to provide critically needed residential, vocational, habilitative, and clinical services for adults, adolescents and children with developmental disabilities, autism and acquired brain injury as well as homecare services for those aging in their homes. 

The registration fee for The Walk is $25 for adults and $12.50 for children 10 and younger.  Registration includes a picnic lunch and sunglasses giveaway.  Interested walkers can easily register and submit payment online at, or can alternately call 413.664.9382 ext. 40, or email

Corporate sponsorships are available for the trail, mile, bronze, silver, and gold levels, ranging from $100 to $2,500 respectively.  Interested businesses should contact Jennifer Civello at for more information. 

Special thanks to Greylock Federal Credit, MountainOne, and The Print Shop Williamstown, current gold level sponsors of The Walk.
