Event Description:

Family Matters is hosting its 32nd Annual Walk & Roll-A-Thon, a much-anticipated community event that brings together youth, families, and the community in joyful celebration. Last year, they raised more than $50,000 to support Family Matters’ youth development and community collaboration work. This year, they're looking forward to a day filled with stories, music, carnival games, and food and would like you to be a part of it.

For more than 34 years, Family Matters has partnered with youth, families, and communities to cultivate a way of living in the world that develops strong relationships, meaningful communication, and safe environments for courageous social change. We seek to build an equitable society for all. 

They anticipate 200-250 attendees, and their goal is to raise $62,000.

All proceeds will fund Family Matters’ programs: 

The Family Matters School, a K-3 cooperative micro-school with a focus on experiential learning
Respectful Communities, a Principles of Leadership training course Project RISE, a teen job-skills training,  and leadership development program, Partners in Learning, a one-to-one after-school tutoring/mentoring program, Community Engagement, a partnership with families and members of the community involved in ongoing activities and initiatives beyond those participating in daily programming
