   This Saturday, The Angel Fund will host our 11th Annual Walk of Hope for ALS in Wakefield on the shores of beautiful Lake Quannapowitt. The 3.5-mile level route will run parallel to the lake, providing a picturesque walk for walkers of all ages and abilities.
   Take part in the walk, raise money through pledges and donations, and participate in activities on the Common! Refreshments will be available for all walkers at the conclusion of the walk.
   Bring the family!! We will have face painting, pony rides, bounce rides, music and refreshments. The Jazzabelles will perform at noon.
   We encourage you to join in this celebration of hope by walking, and raising money, for those who are living with ALS, or in memory of those who are no longer with us.
We are fighting to find the cure!
Walk with us on Saturday!
