Walking the Walk: The DESCO Company proud to help a good cause
There’s a saying that it’s better to walk the walk than talk the talk…and at DESCO that’s what we believe. So this year, we’re proud to be one of the event sponsors of the third annual Sharon’s Walk, a memorial walk and family-friendly event to honor Sharon and Elaine Fogaren.
Sharon Fogaren, the long time co-host of the “J.R. & Sharon”morning radio show on FUN 107, passed away after a brief illness in 2009 at the young age of 43. Sharon’s mother, Elaine, passed away in 2004 after a battle with breast cancer. It was Sharon’s dream to host a walk to honor her mother and to help raise awareness about breast cancer an
d local cancer care.
The third annual “Sharon’s Walk” will be held on Sunday, September 30, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Fort Taber, 1000 Rodney French Boulevard in New Bedford. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care.
Sharon’s Walk is a 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) walk that will take place around Fort Taber. Registration begins at 9 a.m with the event kicking-off at 11 a.m. Participants are welcome to join the walk at any time during the event. The family friendly event includes entertainment, refreshments, children’s activities, raffles and more. Free health screenings will also be provided by the Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care and the Southcoast Health.
