Walk-a-thon in Bristol to benefit Haiti

BRISTOL — An effort to raise funds for L’Orphelinat Notre-Dame du Perpetuel Secours, an orphanage in Haiti, will take place Saturday, June 26, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in Bristol. The 4th Annual “Raise A Child in Haiti” Walk-A-Thon will commence on the Bristol Baptist Church Lawn, off Park Street.

Organizers hope to raise $10,000 this year. The orphanage is in the middle of a project to build a kitchen and more bathrooms, among other projects. Registration is 9:30-10 a.m., and the walk from 10 to 11 a.m. Participants can walk with a group leader or on their own on a choice of two paths, one on Bristol village sidewalks and one on the Bristol Trail Network.

Anyone who raises $1,000 will be entered to win a B&B-style vacation of five days and four nights at the home of Don and Karen Wheeler in Naples, Fla. Flexible dates will fit the winner’s schedule.

More information about the orphanage can be found at Email [email protected] to register or with questions.
