The first annual Joe Chaves 5k Memorial Walk/Run will take place this Sunday, September 30, starting at 1pm. Founded in memory of José A. Chaves in 2010, the Joe & Dorothy Chaves Foundation advocates on behalf of immigrants seeking to improve their lives and advance the future prospects of their families in Greater Boston. You can register for the event online ($15) or in person at the event ($25), and if you can’t make it to the Walk/Run but still want to show your support, you can donate to the Chaves Foundation here, or connect via Facebook here.
The Walk/Run route begins at Inman Square, heads down Cambridge St., crosses the Gilmore Bridge into Charlestown, and then turns around to finish at St. Anthony’s Church in East Cambridge, where refreshments, games, and entertainment await. All proceeds from the event will benefit scholarships and community programs for the Greater Boston Portuguese-American community. Come on down to Inman Square this weekend to show your support for a great cause and have some fun!
