The Wendy's Walk for Kids has been honored by the Broome County Legislature.
The walk, which takes place during the Dick's Sporting Goods Open at En-joie Golf Course each year, recently was recognized as the PGA Champions Tour's top charity of 2012. Wendy's Walk has been in existence for four years. In its first year, 150 walkers raised $40,000 for area organizations that serve children. Last year, 700 walkers raised nearly $200,000.
Jeff Coghlan says, "It's in times when there are so many conflicting issues, so many polarizing issues in our community and in our country and in our world, and it's just great to be involved in something that we can all agree on. That's helping children."
This year's Wendy's Walk for Kids will be Sunday August 18th after the final round of the Dick's Open. You can register at wendyswalk.com
