Central Massachusetts Walk To Cure Diabetes – This fun-filled charity walk takes place in various locations across the country, and this one will be held on Sunday, October 6th at the Bolton Fair Grounds in Lancaster.  The walk raises funds and awareness for the millions of people that are living with type 1 diabetes.  There is no registration fee although guests are encouraged to register for the walk ahead of time.  You can either walk alone or create a team and fundraise together.  The walk begins at 10:30 AM and is a 5K, it will be held rain or shine so make sure you dress for the weather.

Howl O Ween – For all of you animal lovers out there, this charity event will be a fun day out for you and your furry friend!  This fundraiser benefits the German Shepherd Research and Rescue Center and will take place at Endicott Park in Danvers on Sunday, October 13th from 10 AM – 3 PM.  Admission is free and there will be tons of fun activities going on throughout the day including a pledge walk, costume contest, dog demo’s, lucky ticket raffle, vendors, and much more.

Making Strides Walk To End Breast Cancer – October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and this month you can join the American Cancer Society for their annual Making Strides Walk in Worcester on October 20th at 10:30 AM.  This non-competitive, 2.5 mile walk not only raises funds to assist in life-saving research, but also raises awareness for this disease that effects 1 in 8 women.  There are other walks going on across the state this month, in Boston, Greater Springfield, Cape Cod, Berkshire County, and Nantucket so find the one that’s closest to you and sign up to join the fight against breast cancer!  Keep in mind that these walks are on different dates and possibly different lengths than the one in Worcester, so make sure you look into the details for the walk closest to you!

It’s easy to give back and have fun all at the same time this month, whether you’re working up a sweat at a charity walk, enjoying a concert, or having a fun day with your furry friend, there’s something going on this month for everyone to enjoy!
