“End the Silence. Stop the Violence.”

Walk CommitteeOur dynamic Walk Committee is gearing up for the 19th Annual Walk and Candlelight Vigil, to be held on Sunday, Oct. 19 at 4:00 pm, starting and ending at the Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School, 350 Lynn Fells Parkway in Melrose. The event begins with a Candlelight Vigil and concludes with a 1.7-mile Walk through downtown Melrose. This is a family-friendly event, open to people of all ages. Face painters from “Masks by Design” will be available to entertain the children who are too young to attend the Candlelight Vigil. Dogs, strollers and wagons are welcome along the Walk route! We are currently seeking sponsors for the Walk. Please click on the links below for more information on Sponsorship Opportunities.
