Participants will begin their walk at Inman Square with an official send-off starting from Naveo Credit Union (START LINE).  Walkers will then make their way, on the sidewalk, down Cambridge Street through East Cambridge then across the Gilmore Bridge to Bunker Hill Community College (this is turn-around point), then back to Saint Anthony’s Church hall for refreshments (FINISH LINE).

The Joe & Dorothy Chaves Foundation, a Donor Advised Fund at Fidelity Charitable, was founded in memory of José A. Chaves in 2010.
