The 2014 Liver Life Walk plans are well underway and we want YOU to join in on the fun!
The Liver Life Walk Hartford, presented by Hartford Hospital, will be held on Sunday, September 21 at Rentschler Field in East Hartford and the Liver Life Walk Fairfield County, presented by The Dalio Foundation, will be held the following Sunday, September 28 at Commons Park at Harbor Point in Stamford. Last year’s Walks raised over $215,000 for the fight against liver disease. The goal this year is to raise over $222,000. Funds raised will support the Connecticut Division’s educational programs including the Treatment Choices Initiative Program (TCI), The Love Your Liver youth initiative, and the new Liver Matters program as well as, research awards, advocacy and outreach.
Teams from all around the state of Connecticut are registering and organizing fundraisers to support their team fundraising goals. Join now by going to liverfoundation.org/walk.
This year’s Walk festivities will begin at 8:30am in Hartford and 9:00am in Stamford when registration opens, teams set up in the Team Meeting Area and the emcees kick off the stage program. Face painters and balloon artists will be in the Kid’s Corner, vendors will have free giveaways and sponsors will be on hand to share their information. At the Hartford Walk the emcees will be Renee DiNino of Clear Channel Radio and special guest from News Channel 3. During both stage presentations you will hear from our LIVEr champions, Committee Chairmen and many of our teams, sponsors and staff. The official 5K walks will begin after a warm-up exercise.
Both walks will have lots of free food and drink: Subway sandwiches, fruit, Deep River Snacks, bottled water, and more. Dogs and strollers are more than welcome to attend.
