Registrations are still being accepted for the fifth annual Joan Burns Fun Walk 4 Kane, to be held this Saturday (Sept. 17) along the McKeesport waterfront area.
The walk, which benefits residents at Kane Regional Center in McKeesport, is sponsored by the non-profit Kane Foundation, a spokeswoman said. The foundation raises money to support improvements to Allegheny County's four Kane centers and activities for residents.
A donation of at least $20 is requested, and all donations are tax-deductible.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. Saturday at the Kane center in McKeesport, located at 100 Ninth Ave. near the McKees Point Marina and the bike trail, and the walk begins at 9:30, with a picnic immediately following.
For more information, call (412) 292-8069 or visit the Kane Foundation's website at www.kanecare.com.
