    Walk (or support your RIM Metro North Cluster walkers) around Lake Quannapowitt (5k) on a lovely summer day. It is always lovely when you are helping your neighbor refugees and asylum seekers. You will be walking with other Metro North Cluster members as well as walkers from clusters across Metro Boston. All monies raised will go directly to the support (food, housing, a cell phone and other necessities) of our Metro North Cluster clients. You may also get to meet our current or past clients that will be walking too.
