Looking for a good cause to support, and get some exercise as well? You might want to consider the 2nd Annual Walk in My Shoes, sponsored by Fellowship Health Resources. The 4.6 Mile Walk & Run is an effort to raise money to assist those with addiction and mental health issues. The event will take place on Saturday, May 4 at Fort Taber located at 1000 Rodney French Blvd. in New Bedford. Director Robert Ortiz stopped by Townsquare Sunday this week to discuss the fundraiser, and how his organization is making a difference in helping people turn their lives around.

The cost to participate is $25 per person and participants are asked to check in at 9:30 am for the Walk/Run to take place between 10 am and 12 noon. In case of rain, an alternate date has been scheduled for Sunday, May 5.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
