In celebration of National Women’s Month and International Women’s Day, WAKE, a Bridgeport-based advocacy group that empowers women and girls across the globe in their quest for equal rights and opportunities, is hosting Walk for Her, a community engagement event that will be held on Saturday, March 25, from 9:45 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the University of Bridgeport’s John Cox Student Center, 244 University Avenue, Bridgeport.
The day begins with a 2-mile walk along the perimeter of Seaside Park. It will be followed by a reception, with refreshments, music, live entertainment, sponsor tables and a guest speaker.
Walkers may participate by donating $20 for early registration and $25 for general admission on behalf of the “Her” of their choice, e.g., grandmother, mother, daughter, grandchild, and friend. For more information or to sign up for the day’s event, email WAKEConnecticut@gmail.com.
