JOIN THE VIRTUAL WALK

VIRTUAL Kick Off--May 3, 2020

Our family-favorite event of the year that was originally scheduled to be live at Sherwood Island State Park will now be an online fun, VIRTUAL EVENT during this health crisis. 

This is one of STAR's most important fundraising events of the year that raises over $100,000 to benefit over 600 individuals and their families impacted by Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) who count on STAR for services. 

More than ever, we will be calling upon all of STAR's families and friends to join us (Virtually) to reach our new goal of $150,000 for the 15th Anniversary of this event. There is no doubt that STAR will need this continuity of funds to sustain our critical operations like every other agency. We hope you will keep STAR on the top of your list of agencies dear to your heart and aligned with your philanthropy. 

Support STAR--BUT STAY HOME!

YOUR VIRTUAL WALK

In Four Easy Steps...

STEP 1

Sign up for STAR's Virtual Walk by clicking the Register button below. That’s it! Set your fundraising goal and begin making a difference in the lives of families. Recruit a team of friends, neighbors, and family to participate with you. 

STEP 2

Whether you walk around the block, in the park or do a 1K or a 10k run, or bike ride-- when, where and how far you go is up to you. And since it’s on your own time, you can do a little each day, if that works best. STAR's Virtual Walk will span the month of May so you can plan a nuclear family walk, roll, run, or bike event once a week or more! If you start a team, be sure to post an update on your team page.

STEP 3

Helping local neighbors with intellectual and developmental disabilities is an incredible reason to raise money. Let's highlight your efforts! Send your walk related photos to jthompson@starct.org and we'll post on the event website.

 

STEP 4

Share a photo of yourself and use #STARWalk to let us know where you are walking. You can also tag us @STAR_Inc_ on Twitter, @star_inc on Instagram or @starct.org on Facebook. And remember—a little thanks goes a long way. Be sure to tag supporters and thank those who have joined you to help you reach your goal.
