The Andrea Rizzo Foundation's 13th annual Walk for the Children will benefit children with cancer and special needs through pediatric dance therapy programming. This two-mile scenic stroll is a fun family event, highlighted by raffles, kids activity booth, refreshments and dance performances.

Killed by a drunk driver in 2002, Rizzo was a childhood cancer survivor who received a bachelor's degree in elementary and special education from Salve Regina and was a graduate student at New York University at the time of her death. A second-grade special education teacher, Rizzo's dream was to combine her love of teaching and dance to become a dance therapist for children with cancer and special needs.
