It is a one mile walk from Lowell High School to the Boys & Girls Club. Each day 100 teens walk to the Club from school so that they can access a brighter future for themselves. Over the course of the year, over 10,000 miles will be walked towards a brighter future.
This year, we want to show our teens that we are willing to walk a mile in their shoes. Our goal is for our community to collectively walk 10,000 miles and raise $10,000 to support programs at the Boys & Girls Club that help our teens (and those members who will be teens one day) make good decisions, avoid risky behaviors, find a safe environment, and access positive role models. While here, they participate in programs designed to help them develop and execute a plan for a brighter future.
Walking Towards Their Future is a for our community to show teens in Lowell that we believe in them, and support the hard work and time they invest in building a brighter future for themselves. Funds raised through this program support Career & College Readiness programs, and provide positive adult role models to guide them along their path.
