BRIDGES to host walk-a-thon

BRIDGES (Building Respect and Interaction through Dialogue, Growth, Education and Solutions) and Moore Counseling Ministries are hosting a walk-a-thon here in the city of Euclid Sept. 24, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.. “Walking with Purpose” is an event designed to bring the community together to celebrate and promote diversity and to support some of Euclid’s non-profit organizations. Walkers may direct their pledges to benefit BRIDGES, MCMS Counseling and Addiction Recovery Programs, the Rosemary Center, the Euclid Hunger Center or the Mary Mavec Opportunity School.  

Walking is a form of exercise that is simple and safe, good for your heart and your waistline. Everyone in the community is welcome to participate! Why not get a team together of family, friends or co-workers? Prizes will be awarded to the largest group, the most money raised and most interesting theme. After the walk get to know your neighbors at a picnic at Sims Park, hosted by The Lake Shore Ministry Group. Hot dogs and snacks will be provided by Dave’s Supermarket for a minimal cost. 

The walk-a-thon will begin and end at Sims Park on Lakeshore Boulevard. Walkers can choose the Senior Circuit, the 2. 5 mile, or the 5.5 mile walk. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the first step off is at 9 a.m. If you’d like to participate contact Mary Muehle at (216) 481-3272 or email BRIDGES at Information and forms are also available at or at the Euclid Public Library or Euclid City Hall.  The walk-a-thon will be held rain or shine!
