The Neville-Lake Walkathon was held today at Chinguacousy Park on Saturday to honour the memory of Gary Neville and the Neville-Lake children, Daniel (9), Harrison (5) and Milagros (2) who were tragically taken last September. The event benefits causes that support activities the family loved.
Despite the rain, members of the community showed up and supported the inaugural event. The walkathon also highlighted the work of Many Hands Doing Good which has a mission to nurture and inspire children and students through art, dance, and music. The organization was created as a response to the tragedy that affected the Neville-Lake family and community to continue the passions of the children and grandfather – their love for music, art, dance, and broadcasting.
Booths were set up to symbolize these passions, including the Milly’s Station. Milly loved art and a station was set up for children and adults to paint on canvasses.
This was the first Neville-Lake Walkathon and the organizers are planning to organize the event annually. You can get more information on their website. You can also watch our webisode with the organizers.
