Hi friends, we are really sorry to say that we’ve had to make the difficult decision to cancel the CommUNITY Walk.  Current forecasts show a slightly lower chance of rain, but because it appears that it will begin to rain about 3 a.m., even if it stops raining by the time the Walk was going to start, the ground would be soaked and very muddy.  We’re committed to rescheduling this event (or something similar) in the fall, but we needed to take into account the number of people who were attending that utilize wheelchairs and walkers, or that would have difficulty navigating the wet terrain.

It was a very difficult decision for us to make, as we were really looking forward to seeing everyone.  Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns, but we really hope to see you once we’re able to reschedule. #DarnWeather #WeAreCommunitas #BetterTogether

What began in 2016 as EMARC Walks With You is now the CommUNITY Walk, and we’re coming back better than ever. We’re excited to celebrate our 6th Annual CommUNITY Walk with you at Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield! Our CommUNITY WALK will raise awareness about Communitas and raise funds for our organization’s mission. As a valued member of our community, we would love for you to join us for this event. Registration is free, but your $25 registration donation will help us cover the costs of organizing and promoting the CommUNITY WALK, as well as enable us to make a greater impact in the lives of those we serve. We hope you’ll join us for this family-friendly and pet-friendly event!
