St. Martin's Lutheran School to Volunteer at The Annapolis Halloween Walk, A One-Mile Fun Walk through Downtown Annapolis to Raise Funds for Families Affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders
(ANNAPOLIS, Md., October 17, 2016) – St. Martin's Lutheran School of Annapolis is proud to announce that its middle school's "Random Acts of Kindness" (RAK) club will be volunteering at the Annapolis Halloween Walk on Sunday, October 30th from 12pm to 2pm in Downtown Annapolis. The one-mile fun walk will begin and end at Susan Campbell Park in City Dock and includes trick or treating from local businesses on the walk route. Proceeds from the event will benefit local non-profit, Avergan Foundation ( that supports families affected by autism spectrum disorders.

St. Martin's middle school teacher, Magdalene Sfondouris, who helps lead the RAK club was inspired to support the Annapolis Halloween Walk after speaking with the founders of Avergan Foundation, Allison and Tom Barnhill. "We think this event is a wonderful opportunity for our middle school students to support a great local cause and have fun, too," says Sfondouris. The RAK club will be handing out small gifts to all of the kids who are trick-or-treating that day, along with helping guide the walkers as they travel on their way through the walk route.

St. Martin's will have an information booth in Susan Campbell Park, along with other local businesses and services. The park will also feature live music from the band Guava Jelly, pumpkin painting led by Raye of Light Studios, face painting by Passion Paint by Popkins and much more. All attendees are encouraged to dress in costume - adults, children and pets. Prizes from local businesses for best costumes will be awarded at the end of the event.

The Annapolis Halloween Walk is open to the public and there is a $5 registration fee. More details + online registration:
