Amherst Committee for A Better Chance holds 44th Annual Fall Foliage Event on Saturday, October 17, 2015
The Amherst Committee for A Better Chance will hold its 44th Annual Fall Foliage Event on Saturday, October 17, 2015, including the 3-mile Family Style Walk, and the 5k Competitive Run. An Amherst tradition, the event has annually brought together hundreds of residents and school children to admire the diverse colors of the foliage while they walk or run for diversity in the community.
The Fall Foliage Event is Amherst ABC’s biggest fundraiser, providing 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 under the tutelage of Resident Director Talib Sadiq while they attend Amherst Regional High School. Operating costs for the program total the equivalent of a middle class family income, about $100,000.
Register here for this wonderful community event supporting an incredible cause!
