Join the Catching Joy Team for the Walk For Kids during the Life Is Good Festival at Boston Common on June 20, 2009. RSVP to so that we can give you specific information on how to register online and how to get a Catching Joy t-shirt. The walk starts at 10AM and registration starts at 9AM. The 3-mile family-friendly route that can’t be beat. We’ll start at Boston Common, walk along the new Rose Kennedy Greenway to see it all in bloom, stroll along the Harbor Walk with beautiful ocean views, and return to the Common. There will be some surprises and fun along the way to keep our strides steady and our smiles wide. Our hearts will be joyful too, knowing that we are making a world of difference for many of Greater Boston’s most vulnerable children. Now more than ever, a growing number of children who have been hurt by violence, poverty, and loss need our help. All funds raised through donations onsite and all profits from the sale of Life is good merchandise at the event will be directed via the Life is good Kids Foundation to Project Joy, a grassroots nonprofit that uses the power of play to heal and strengthen children whose lives have been deeply impacted by fear and trauma. Their mission: to ensure that nothing (not poverty, not violence, not natural disasters) destroys the playfulness of children.
Catching Joy is delighted to invite families to join in the fun and joy at the Life Is Good Festival. Life is good is on a mission to spread much-needed good vibes nationwide in 2009. We are calling all optimists to join them on our favorite playground, Boston Common, on June 20, 2009 from 11am to 5pm, for a free, day-long family-friendly festival. The outdoor bash features fantastic live music from Grammy winners The Blind Boys of Alabama, rising national recording artist Brett Dennen, and family-favorite SteveSongs. As always, there will be heaps of classic backyard food and a colorful mix of good-time games and activities for all ages. From seed spitting and Double Dutch to soccer kicks, tug-o’-wars and football flings, we promise a day of big smiles and healthy play.
