When and where is the 30th annual LifePath Walkathon? 

The Walkathon will be held Saturday, May 7, 2022 and we are planning an in-person event to take place at LifePath's headquarters located at 101 Munson Street in Greenfield.

Is there a theme to the event this year?

At this time we are still developing what the event will look like. Our goal is to create a festive environment.  If you have connections to performers, resources, or other highlights please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

How may we participate in this year's event?

Businesses

Sponsorship is the backbone of this event! This year’s opportunities include sponsorship levels starting at $250 and an option to be with us on event day. You’ll be recognized as a company that cares about community members and their quality of life as they age. 

Community Organizations
We depend on each other each day and when we stand together, we change the lives of more people. Because of this, we want to celebrate our partnerships. Like sponsors, we’re looking for you to join us on event day. Help us tell the story of why this collaborative community is a great place to grow older together.

Teams and Individual Fundraisers
We can’t say it enough - you are the heart and soul of the Walkathon. It’s time to gather your team members, call on your donors, and do what you do: craft and send email messages, make phone calls, and WALK! Asking and giving may again be done through an online personal fundraising link, through the website, or by using donation sheets. Share your activity on social media (Facebook! Instagram! Twitter!) to secure more support. Our hope is to have the majority of teams return and secure new teams from schools, social organizations, businesses, and more. (Know someone looking for a great project that will keep them moving?) We are so grateful for your spirit, effort, enthusiasm and generosity.

Donors

We know that so many of you look forward to connecting with your favorite team and supporting their fundraising effort.  When they reach out, please show them love with your continued generosity or first-time donation. 

How are the funds raised through the Walkathon used? 

The needs are continually changing and we feel fortunate to have this source of funding to answer those needs in the ways described above, and more.

What’s the most important thing to know about unrestricted funding?

Unrestricted funds give LifePath the flexibility to make independence an option in every way possible. Receiving funding in this way offers LifePath the flexibility to take care of older adults, individuals with disabilities and caregivers when and where it is needed across our programs and services.

Can donors specify which programs they'd like to support?

While providing an unrestricted donation offers LifePath the greatest flexibility to allocate resources to the most in-need programs, donors are welcome to specify a program, if they wish. Those funds would then be "restricted" and only be spent on costs related to the specified program.

Can I send a check in support of the effort?

Always! Checks made out to LifePath with “Walkathon” in the memo line can be mailed to LifePath at 101 Munson Street, Suite 201, Greenfield, MA 01301.

If I have questions, who can I talk to?
