CHAPS' Walk-a-Thon is our primary monetary fundraiser. Each year, usually the first Sunday in November, staff, consumers, families and friends gather together and participate in a three mile walk through the community. Local businesses and individuals in the community generously sponsor our Walk-a-Thon by donating a monetary pledge. These pledges are used to fund programs and create additional supports for CHAPS' consumers, such as emergency assistance for homeless persons, educational and enrichment programs, and holiday gatherings for those who would otherwise be alone. For more information on contributing to this year's annual Walk-a-Thon, call Linda Carpenter at 814-373-5062 or email at email@example.com. Sponsor sheets are also available at CHAPS should anyone be interested in acquiring pledges and/or participating in the Walk-a-Thon.
