‘Walk for Children’ to be held this August

On Sunday, Aug. 15, at 2:30 p.m. at Salve Regina University, the Andréa Rizzo Foundation’s ninth annual Walk for the Children will raise funds to benefit children with cancer and special needs at Hasbro Children’s Hospital and in local public schools.

This two-mile scenic stroll along the Newport Cliff Walk is a free event featuring Art Berluti of WADK as emcee. The event will include raffles, and the chance to win an Apple iPad, kids’ activities, free refreshments and dance performances by local dance companies.

A $500 prize will be awarded to the top pledge-raising team to donate to their favorite charitable organization.
