Please join us for the 47th Annual Fall Foliage Walk/Run on October 20th, 2018! It’s a beautiful 5K walk/run in downtown Amherst, through the Amherst College campus, and along forested trails in a local bird sanctuary.
Proceeds will benefit A Better Chance Amherst which provides living and school expenses for the ABC scholars: young men of color identified by the national ABC program for their leadership potential. They board at the ABC House on North Prospect Street in Amherst while they attend Amherst Regional High School.
The Fall Foliage Walk/Run is ABC's biggest fundraiser of the year!
Create your own fundraising page, whether or not you participate on Oct. 20th. Register by using the "Fundraising ONLY" category. It's free to register as a fundraiser.
