Walk Held to Raise Funds for the RiteCare Center
This past October, the Valley of Savannah Scottish Rite Masons held their 2nd Annual Walk for RiteCare at Lake Mayer Park in Savannah, Georgia. Held annually, the walk is held as a way to raise funds for the Georgia Southern University RiteCare Center.
Eighty individuals, including Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus students and staff, registered and participated in the walk. Featuring trick-or-treating along the walking trail for children, a children’s costume contest and a team costume contest, the event raised $5,000 for the RiteCare Center. Graduate students from the communication sciences and disorders class of 2021 team won first place for the costume contest with second place going to the communication sciences and disorders undergraduate students on National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSHLA) team.
