Hello all!! Just letting everyone know that there will be the first annual "Stacey Burns Walk Against Violence Scholarship Fund", held on Saturday October 24, overnight to Sunday October 25th , 1pm (registration) , 2pm the walk begins, to 10 am, at the "Nick" recreation field in Wolfeboro NH. This is an overnight event , so bring your tents. The concept for this event is to mock a "relay for life" type event, meaning you pay a registration fee, and either form teams or walk individually and get sponsored for the laps that you walk. The registration fee is $10 . All proceeds from this event will go into a scholarship fund at meredith village savings until the end of each school year. At that time , a kingswood student seeking a career in medicine, will recieve a portion as a scholarship. for more info or to pre register, email Nichole at tngproulx@yahoo.com or call at 603-515-3446.

There will be an article in the granite state news within the next two weeks in regards to the walk to inform more people!! things are getting pretty exciting ! We will be offering early registrations, you may do this by either contacting myself, Nichole , or there will be formal sign ups soon at the Nick. probably mid September . Also...if there are any businesses that would like to set up a tent at the event you may do so, we are requesting a "sponsor fee" of $50 , which of course goes to the Stacey Burns Memorial walk against violence scholarship fund.

Hi, Nicole,

Any thought to establishing a scholarship fund for Stacey's Kids?:confused:

After all, you are using her name.

Hi capn!! There is already a scholarship fund in the kids name, it was set up months ago at Meredith Village Savings Bank. Its called "The Burns Children Education Fund" so , enough with the sarcasm. Secondly, no, the first annual walk is grammatically correct. If you need a registration form I will gladly get you one.

hey everyone!! due to the incliment weather the event will take place indoors at the kingswood regional high school. we will be able to set up sleeping areas in the gymnasium, use the kitchen, and use the upstairs and downstairs of the building for walking areas. the event schedule will remain the same just a change of place.


see you all there
