Katie Brienzo Memorial Walk Draws Hundreds in Fairhaven
Over 225 people took to the streets of North Fairhaven Saturday in memory of Katie Brienzo. The young Fairhaven resident worked as an advocate for the developmentally disabled.
Friends and family decided to organize a walk in Katie's honor after she was killed while attempting to cross Sconticut Neck Road last November. Brienzo's sister, ashley lentini organized the event, and says she was overwhelmed by the response to the walk.
Over two thousand dollars was raised by the event, with all proceeds going to M.O. Life Incorporated, a local charity that operates a food pantry and assists disabled persons.
