2022 David Ticchi NFB Cambridge Walk
To kick off Blind Equality Achievement Awareness Month, we are thrilled to be back in person for our annual David Ticchi NFB Cambridge Walk, sponsored by the Cambridge Chapter of the National Federation of the Blind of Massachusetts. This year’s walk will be held rain or shine on Sunday, October 2nd at the Fresh Pond Reservoir in Cambridge, MA. The walk will begin at 9 AM and run until 1 PM. We are hoping for beautiful fall weather! As usual, we will have a registration table where people can come to sign up and meet with us, as well as learn more about the NFB! We hope you’ll make plans to come, bring family and friends and that you have asked for donations from all of your contacts! We’ll be meeting at our table which is near the front door of the Cambridge Water Department building at 250 Fresh Pond Parkway.
Whether or not you are able to walk with us but would like to contribute, please make checks payable to Cambridge NFB and mail to
Cambridge Savings Bank
1374 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge, MA 02138
Donations can also be made online using a credit card or PayPal at https://www.nfbma.org/chapters-and-divisions/cambridge-chapter and selecting the link to ‘Donate to the Cambridge Chapter with PayPal’.
But wait: There’s more!!!
Post Walk Lunch
At 1 PM, we plan to move a couple of miles away to the Summer Shack for lunch. The Summer Shack is a fun, casual spot known for its great atmosphere and delicious food prepared by the world-renowned chef, Jasper White.
We are working to have transportation available from Fresh Pond to the Summer Shack. However, if you can use your own LYFT or Uber or any other transportation service, that would be great!
The more the merrier:
If we have a group of 30 people or more who register for this post walk lunch, each participant will only be charged $20.00 for their meal. The NFB will cover the remaining cost of your lunch as a fall celebration of coming together in person!
There will be a cash bar available for those who wish to order beverages. On the day of the event, you will be able to choose a soup or salad, then you will choose from a vegetarian, seafood, beef or chicken entrée. Finally, you will get a dessert that is selected by the famous Chef of Summer Shack.
