Preparations are underway for Kennedy-Donovan Center‘s 21st Annual Rock-A-Thon! As you may already know, this rocking chair marathon benefits our New Bedford based programs including the Kennedy-Donovan Center School, Day Habilitation Program, Early Intervention, Healthy Families, and Transportation. We hope to raise over $5,000 through donations, sponsor-ships and raffles this year. Proceeds from this Rock-A-Thon will be utilized to provide enhanced recreational and social opportunities, as well as equipment needs for the children and adults served through our programs
The Rock-A-Thon is scheduled for Friday, August 15, 2014 from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm at Kennedy-Donovan Center, on the corner of Hawthorn and County Streets in New Bedford.
