Lodestar’s 5th Birthday Campaign • May 1st, 2021 at 7am
Lodestar is embarking on our biggest fundraising campaign yet. Will you help us reach our goal of $40,000?
10 volunteers will take the 15-mile walk from Babylon Town Hall to our office in Bohemia. We are carrying 130 rocks, one for each program participant, to give increased visibility to the often invisible illness of mental illness. We want this walk to symbolize how Lodestar has grown and the path that we have taken to get where we are today.
As we walk, we will also be carrying a painted stone for each of the children in our program. The weight of these stones will represent the invisible weight of mental illness.
Walkers will endeavor to raise $2,500 each to sponsor their walk.
Along the way, we will stop to thank some our corporate sponsors and record videos of our journey. At the end, we will have a small, COVID-safe outdoor gathering in Bohemia to celebrate our journey.
Lodestar currently pays, on average, an annual cost of $500 per child on activity fees. This cost used to be covered by the state, but since 2018, we have been paying for it ourselves. $40,000 will help cover these expenses.
