The August 14 Walk and Celebration: 

This 10 a.m. in-person walk will raise awareness and funds to support mental health services for children and their families. Despite the hardships our young clients face on a personal level, it is their strength and spirit that allows them to trust in others in times of crisis. We walk in their honor! Register and raise funds here! 

We are also thrilled to have WPLR's Chaz and AJ host their Classic Car Show on the front gravel parking lot of Quarry Walk! Join us for classic cars, live music, food trucks, a Touch-a-Truck, raffles, games and more!
