The seventh-annual "Joan Burns Fun Walk 4 Kane" will be held this Saturday to raise money for activities for residents of Allegheny County's four Kane skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. at Kane McKeesport, 100 Ninth Ave. at Water Street, and the walk begins at 9:30 a.m. A picnic on the Kane lawn will follow. The first 100 people to register will receive a T-shirt.

The registration fee is $20, but will be waved for anyone who turns in donations and pledges of $50 or more, a spokesperson said.

All proceeds benefit the Kane Foundation, a non-profit charity which raises money to provide special events and extracurricular activities for Kane residents at facilities in McKeesport, Glen Hazel, Ross Twp. and Scott Twp.

The walk is named for retired McKeesport Area teacher Joan Burns, a Kane volunteer who died in 2013 at age 59. Burns was a board member of the Kane Foundation and co-founder of the family council at Kane McKeesport.
