Lost Boys Foundation Plans Music Row Walkathon
September 1, 2010 at 6:27 AM (PT)
The LOST BOYS FOUNDATION of NASHVILLE is hosting the first MUSIC ROW WALKATHON, "Journey of Hope," set to begin at 10a (CT) on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18th, in OWEN BRADLEY PARK on the south side of MUSIC CIRCLE. Participants will walk the length of MUSIC ROW WEST and then down MUSIC ROW EAST back to the park. It's a 2.2-mile course from end-to-end, with all proceeds from the walk going to the LOST BOYS FOUNDATION.
The foundation is a non-profit organization set up to help transform the lives of the LOST BOYS who escaped genocide in SUDAN. LOST BOY PAUL MATOR MANYAK said: "We are so excited by this.” He is planning to bring his wife and daughter to walk up and down MUSIC ROW to symbolize the long trek that was taken by the thousands of young men who were forced to flee their villages as boys and some finding sanctuary in AMERICA.
Registration is now online at www.thelostboysfoundation.org and businesses on MUSIC ROW are being asked to participate, either as a sponsor, participant or volunteer. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (615) 256-8302.
