Walk for Mental Health Awareness

On Saturday June 7th the Durham/Northumberland Chapter participated in the Community Care Durham 9th Annual  "Walk for Mental Health Awareness".  Not only did the chapter participate in a great community event but was also able to sponsor one of the three water stations as shown by Betsy and Kim.  A big thank you to all the chapter members, families and pets who participated.  It was a great event filled with fun, sun, laughs and a few blisters!
