Safe Futures schedules annual Walk-A-Thon for Oct. 17
Waterford — Safe Futures, a nonprofit serving victims of domestic violence, is hosting its annual Walk-A-Thon fundraiser next month during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Mike Buscetto III, owner of Filomena’s restaurant in Waterford, returns this year as chairman of Safe Futures’ Annual 4K Safe Walk. The event raises money in support of the services Safe Futures provides to some 10,000 clients annually across southeastern Connecticut.
This year’s Safe Walk is at Waterford High School on Sunday, Oct. 17. Same-day registration begins at 8:15 a.m. and walkers will begin circling the school’s outdoor track at 9 a.m.
Participants also can register ahead of the event online at bit.ly/sf4ksafewalk, or by visiting Buscetto’s restaurant at 262 Boston Post Road, where forms are available.
Buscetto is a past recipient of the Champion for Children Award given by the town of Waterford, as well as numerous other civic accolades.
