First Annual CakeWalk at Millennium Park benefiting Homeless Kids

On May 20, 2012, as part of our year-long 10th Birthday celebration, Birthday Wishes will sponsor its first annual CakeWalk at Millennium Park in West Roxbury.
This event has been percolating here for several years, and we are very excited to see it come to fruition as we celebrate 10 years of bringing birthday parties to homeless children.
CakeWalk represents the core values and philosophy of Birthday Wishes:  a family-friendly, grassroots event that provides an opportunity for kids to help kids.
The CakeWalk is a non-competitive, fun walk and fundraiser which includes a morning full of great kids’ activities, surprise guests, and refreshments including a giant birthday cake for all to enjoy.  Face-painting, kite flying, and children’s yoga are just a few of the attractions for kids of all ages.
Most importantly, “CakeWalkers” will be coming together to support the work of Birthday Wishes.  Anyone who has volunteered at a Birthday Wishes party has seen the impact that this experience has on the birthday children, their families, and even the other shelter residents.  The simple act of providing joy and making a child feel loved and special, especially on their birthday,  brings immeasurable benefits to children tramatized by homelessness.
In 2012, we are on target to serve over 14,000 homeless children in Massachusetts alone.  Please take a few moments to register for CakeWalk and help ensure that every homeless child in Massachusetts is celebrated on their birthday.
Walkers can participate as individuals, or form a team with family, friends, or groups. It’s easy to create individual fundraising pages, set a fundraising goal, and invite family, friends and colleagues to help you reach your goal.
