Enjoy a 2.5 or 5-mile scenic walk through Cambridge, fun performances, breakfast, lunch and great raffle prizes! Teams and individuals are welcome, and all proceeds will go to supporting our schools and programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. Stick around for family activities including henna tattoos!
