Program Schedule: 
Please join us for the 6th annual Walk/Run for CORD and Picnic.  This is a fun picnic with food & activities for children and adults.  We will start with a 3.5 mile easy walk/run on flat ground through a beautiful, well marked trail, followed by a picnic with fun and games for all.

 

The goal of this Walk-A-Thon is to raise funds for the Chinmaya Organization for Rural Development (CORD) - an India-based non-profit organization that helps disadvantaged villagers transform their lives through self-help programs.  We have raised for $50K over the past fours years.  Please register for the event at:
