The following information was provided by Watertown Walks for Peace:
Watertown once again has a team registered for the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace on Sunday, May 13 (Mothers’ Day).
The Walk raises funds for the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute, a center for
healing, teaching and learning for families and communities impacted by murder,
grief, trauma and loss.
The Walk started in 1996 so mothers of murdered children could receive support and love from their neighbors. Twenty-two years later, the Mother’s Day Walk continues to be a powerful way to honor loved ones who have been murdered and embrace partners in peacemaking. The walk starts at Fields Corner in Dorchester and ends at Boston City Hall, a route of 6.8 miles. Madison Park High School is a mid point where you can either start or stop the walk if you choose.
To register to walk, go to https://www.mothersdaywalk4peace.org.
If you are unable to walk this year, but would still like to support the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace, please donate on-line to our group. A free bus will leave the parking lot of First Parish of Watertown (35 Church St.) at 7:15 a.m.
If you would like to reserve a seat on the bus, email firstname.lastname@example.org. In your RSVP, include your cell phone number. Please be at the church at 7:00 a.m.
Watertown Walks for Peace is sponsored by the World in Watertown, Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice and the Environment, First Parish of Watertown, and the Church of the Good Shepherd.
