With LifePath’s fiscal year closing on June 30, we finished tallying totals for The Path For Life Walkathon. We are proud to share that the total raised through this event is $63,661 from team and individual fundraising, sponsorship, general event donations, and donations from the benefit concert hosted by Northfield Mount Hermon.
This year’s total represents 457 gifts, with 128 of those being from donors who gave for the first time. Thank you to sponsors, donors, and fundraisers who were behind that new support. And thank you to the other 70% of you who returned to support us again this year. Compared to 2022, the number of gifts dipped by 28%, but our overall giving total only suffered a 7.5% decline. That means supporters this year have been extra generous—for which we are so grateful. Your support allows LifePath, a non-profit organization, to provide the programs and services needed by members of this community to secure their independence and allow them to age with dignity.
