Join Children’s Friend and Panera Bread on Saturday, April 26, 2014 for a great day at the park for a good cause.

Children’s Friend is raising money for Rhode Island’s most vulnerable children with a walk or timed 5K run, live performances, arts and crafts, and all kinds of fun for children and adults! There will also be plenty of delicious food from Panera Bread.

The proceeds from The Walk & Run benefit Children’s Friend, Rhode Island’s oldest child welfare agency.
