This three-mile walk through historic North Easton Village begins and ends at the Easton Middle School.  Participating in the walk is easy.  You can—walk, run, skate, skip—and help raise funds as an individual or as part of a team.   If you can’t join in the Walk, you can sponsor a walker, make a financial contribution, or donate a raffle prize.
