Community Support for Memories Walk Amazing

TCR Memories Walk Balloons at Town Hall 2010 WEBWe had sunshine yesterday for the annual Memories Walk, but more importantly we were surrounded by familes, volunteers, and friends who came to support the mission and programs of The Children’s Room.

The community support was simply amazing.  We would like to thank everyone who walked, donated, and sent words of encouragement.  And we would like to give special thanks to our Sol Circle walkers, the Arlington Hockey Club, and Robert’s Birthday party.

Donations can still be made online at www.firstgiving.com/childrensroom, or by mail.

Our Marathon Woman – Victoria Arthur’s Run

She did it! Dr. Victoria Arthur completed the Boston Marathon (her first marathon ever) with an official time of 4:48:41. Impressive! And there is more exciting news to share: Not only did Vic reach her fundraising goal of $7500 (enough to fund five children in our program), but she is getting very close to doubling that number.

You can help her reach this amazing new target to fund ten children by donating today.

9/11 Anniversary: Moment of Silence, Day of Service, and Unbounded Gratitude

We, The Children’s Room friends and families, will honor the Moment of Silence at 8:46am on September 11, 2009 to remember those lost, and to celebrate their lives and the lives of their families who continue the journey of hope and healing.

We share and embrace the Massachusetts 9/11 Fund’s themes of service, remembrance, and volunteerism, and are deeply grateful to have had our Annual Memories Walk selected as one of this year’s local “United We Serve” volunteer projects.

Anyone who would like to donate to the Mass 9/11 Fund can find their Memories Walk team at Firstgiving.com/childrensroom.
