Walk-a-Thon Co-Chair & Committee Members Needed

The WAT occurs in May and is a huge fundraiser for NSS and such a wonderful experience to be part of. There is something for every level of time commitment – all helping hands are welcome. If you are interested in joining us or for questions, in general, please reach out to Kelly Takacs and Gillian Mongirdas at northstratfieldwalkathon@gmail.com. Thank you!
