Kavanagh Helps Kick-Off First Annual Lower Eastside Girls Walk-A-Thon

May 16, 2009

On May 16, 2009, Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh joined the Lower Eastside Girls Club and City Councilmember Rosie Mendez for the Girls Club’s first ever walk-a-thon event. The girls and their supporters and friends walked 5 kilometers through the Lower East Side to increase awareness of girls’ and women’s health issues and to raise funds to support Girls Club health and nutrition programs for economically disadvantaged girls and young women. Kavanagh applauds the girls for their initiative and is already looking forward to next year’s event!
