May 1 – May 31 all-day

Proceeds create life changing opportunities for global awareness through intercultural learning trips for Boston Public School students

McGRATHPR.com – The Kerry Jon Walker Fund (KJWF), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping humanity and supporting those affected by poverty, presents Walk Around The World a one-month challenge from May 1 through 31, accumulating miles and impact to support The Kerry Fund’s mission to ensure that financially challenged youth from less advantaged communities enjoy cross-cultural, immersive experiences steeped in experiential learning, generating a global opportunity to serve.

Walk anywhere around the world this May with The Kerry Fund, and walk with purpose! Walk Around The World puts the spring in the collective step around the globe, with a goal for participants to collectively walk 24,901 miles, the earth’s full circumference. Participants may walk, jog, or run anywhere, anytime during the month of May in financial and social support. Supporters will log miles, get in shape and raise money while fulfilling the inherent human desire to do good.

“Life did not stop during the pandemic,” shares KJWF Founder Mikey Walker. “Education is imperative, and the youth of Boston Public Schools are our hope for the future.  Our fundraising efforts help create opportunities for local students in preparation for and during our intercultural learning trips.  Over time, our Global Connections alumni have impressed upon us the distances many Rwandans travel for water, food, school and medical care. We understand that fitness is imperative, and those endorphins are a perfect complement to the change of the spring season.”  Walker parallels her inspiration for the fundraiser in the Rwandan tradition of “Mucaka Mucaka”, the Rwandan community’s custom of passing the miles while blending song, dance and movement into the journey.

Founded in 2010, enhancing the education of youth is at the heart of The Kerry Jon Walker Fund’s mission.  Amongst its accomplishments, KJWF provided 3000 lbs. of books, maps and educational materials, as well as school uniforms, to village schools in Guinea, West Africa.  The community ranks amongst the poorest in the world, home to the region’s most deprived children.

Since 2013, students supported by The Kerry Fund have traveled to Rwanda to experience the world beyond their neighborhoods.  Participants begin their commitment by studying Rwandan history, genocide and the road to reconciliation. They are inspired to be active in their own communities by creating service projects that raise social issue awareness while helping others in need, developing empathy as they experience the power of giving.

Each student’s knowledge culminates in travel to Rwanda, Africa.  For many this is their first air travel experience. Upon arrival at the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village (ASYV), the students become immersed in an international culture and build life-long bonds with the Village’s resident orphaned teenagers. They learn local customs and engage in service projects that benefit the ASYV and Rwandan communities. These Kerry Fund opportunities inspire students to realize their potential impact as alumni and support their futures as local and global leaders for change.

To participate in Walk Around The World, visit thekerryfund.org/walk-around-the-world to register.  KJWF will email participants once weekly during the month of May, requesting a miles walked report logged by each participant.  Individuals may register as a gift donor, walker, group walk organizer or as an individual with pledged sponsors.  Participants are encouraged to share their journey on Facebook and Instagram utilizing the hashtag #walkaroundtheworld.  To learn more or support the Kerry Jon Walker Fund, visit thekerryfund.org.

Mark William – Come Croon with me!

Sunday, July 11, 7:30 pm, tickets are $32

Mark William hits the stage like a lightning bolt! His own unique, youthful spin on golden age crooner styling delivers in a collection of timeless songs from Broadway and The Great American Songbook. With his glossy approach, Mark glides from Jerry Herman to Peter Allen to Henry Mancini with charismatic ease and a spring in his step. He hypnotizes with a set of enduring classics, filtered through Mark’s youthful perspective and talent set. The show is distinctly new-age romantic, yet evocative of golden-age cinematic glamour. Mark is the winner of two Broadway World awards (Best Debut Act, and Best Independent Recording), and was named a top ten cabaret act of 2018 by both Theater Pizzazz and Times Square Chronicles.

Saturday, July 17, 7:30 pm, tickets are $30

Portland, Maine-based Don Campbell has a unique and uncanny ability to sing comfortably in the tenor range of Vince Gill, Chris Isaak or Dan Fogelberg, and go easily into the sub-bass vocal level range of country greats Josh Turner and Johnny Cash, with music that resides in the home of “American crossover” akin to the Eagles and John Cougar Mellencamp.  Don’s mandate is to “always perform for the audience, never at them.” Don is a highly talented multi-instrumentalist and plays acoustic guitar, piano, B3 Organ, bass, electric guitar, nylon string guitar, mandolin, and harmonica in recordings. Don’s music feels like a friend, a natural extension of the singer-songwriter. This concert is generously sponsored by David and Darbee Percival and Norway Savings Bank.

Christine Hurley Comedy!

Like any great comedian, Christine Hurley has an innate ability to see humor in “everyday” situations. For years, she entertained family, friends and neighbors in their kitchens, at barbeques and the grocery store aisles, and now she uses a microphone and the stage.  Christine’s maiden voyage into the world of stand-up comedy was an open audition in NYC for “America’s Funniest Mom.” She figured if it didn’t go well, no one in New York would have known who she was anyway… Turns out it went well! Christine was selected as nationally televised finalist. Her stories and views on motherhood and marriage are exactly what everyone is living through…people get it and love it!  Christine has become a favorite in the comedy world, working with and respected by comedic legends.
