Tammy’s Walk Planned In Walbridge
The annual Tammy’s walk will be on Saturday, August 26, the anniversary of Tammy Bowlin-Macrae’s murder by her boyfriend in 2007.
In hopes of bringing heightened awareness to domestic violence in the community, Tammy’s family and friends have organized a walk as a way of remembering and honoring her memory. All proceeds will go directly to Advocates for Victims and Justice, Inc., in the Toledo area. All contributions are 100 percent tax deductible.
The walk is a completely non-profit event and it depends on donations and the public to make it a success. It will begin at Walbridge Park Gazebo for a 2.5-mile walk. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. with the walk beginning at 9:30 a.m. There will be refreshments and raffles that have been contributed by several businesses within the Toledo area.
