What is the theme?
The Path for Life
LifePath's 31st Annual Walkathon
How can people participate in this year's event?
Sponsorship is the backbone of this event! This year’s opportunities included sponsorship levels starting at $250 and an option to be with us on event day.
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, commuinty partners joined us on event day and helped 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. Fundraisers gathered team members, called on donors, and took action: crafting and sending email messages, making phone calls, and WALK! We are so grateful for your spirit, effort, enthusiasm and generosity.
We know that so many of you looked forward to connecting with your favorite team and/or fundraiser, and supporting their fundraising effort. Thank you for responding when fundraisers reached out.
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. Funding supports people in need of: home care, nutritional support, resources
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.
