Events in Lincoln to raise money for Haiti

LINCOLN — After visiting an the Orphanage of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, just north of Port au Prince in Haiti, Karen Wheeler of Bristol and Patrice Wasserman of Lincoln will hold a series of fundraisers to generate $15,000 to build a roof for the orphanage. The first event will be a walk-a-thon on Saturday, July 14, from 9-11 a.m. on the Bristol green.
Registration is at 9 a.m., and the two-mile stroll runs through Bristol on sidewalks. The event is suitable for all ages, including strollers.
The orphanage, which houses 26 children from ages 2-18 and four adults, rests on half an acre and has a house and a school building. Both are roofless, so the children sleep on the cement floor for now while they wait for the roof to be built.
For more information about the walk-a-thon or other fundraisers for the orphanage, email [email protected] or contact Karen Wheeler at 802-349-9351.
