A&W walks in Kindale cash

Kindale’s walk-a-thon has got off on the right track.

A&W has donated $2,000 in cash and $1,000 in gifts-in-kind to the Sunday fundraiser, which supports individuals with developmental disabilities.

“We believe in growing our business by growing our community” said Jonathan McMurray, of A&W.

The Kindale walk gets underway with registration at 9 a.m. Sunday at the parking lot across from Askews Foods, 3300 Smith Drive in Armstrong.

“Collecting pledges is easier than ever. Simply download the pledge form from the Kindale website at www.kindale.net,” said Cindy Masters, development officer.

New this year is the pledge match guarantee. The first $10 collected by every registered walker will be matched $5 each from Armstrong Pharmacy and Ladies World.

“We are looking forward to having this be our biggest year ever,” said Masters.

After the walk, there will be a pirate ship slide, face painting, card making and a barbecue.

Also on Sunday, there is the community yard sale and there are still tables available.
