Keene, NH Community Steps Out For Kids

Community members joined residents from
Cedarcrest Center for Children with Disabilities at the
4th Annual ‘Kids Care’ Walk & Roll in Keene, NH.
About 170 walkers and “rollers” registered for the 4th Annual ‘Kids Care’ Walk & Roll continuing a Keene, NH tradition of embracing the children who live at Cedarcrest Center for Children with Disabilities.

Most of the 25 children who currently reside at the facility traveled the level 2.1 mile course with their own families, staffers and trustees. Adults, children and pets from across the community also participated.

An additional 130 people made donations, and major business sponsors included Liberty Mutual Insurance, Markem-Imaje, StingRay Optics, Autex Mazda and Clark-Mortenson Insurance, with in-kind support from C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc., Commonwealth Dairy, The Keene Sentinel and the Monadnock Radio Group.

“The community’s support and interaction with our kids is incredible,” said Jeff Fuller, Cedarcrest spokesman.

Proceeds will be used to provide cultural and recreational enrichment opportunities for children who live at Cedarcrest, including field trips, visiting musicians and performers and community outings.
