I used to be a runner but now I save my steps for tennis. I can, however, handle a stroll. Come out and stroll with The Tomorrow Fund in April!
The Tomorrow Fund 19th Annual Stroll N' Roll
Sunday April 3, 2022, 10am
Garden City Center,
The Tomorrow Fund provides daily financial and emotional support to children with cancer and their families. I wrote about them in a previous post when I introduced them as one of Second Serve's partner nonprofits earlier this year.
I recently received a Tomorrow Fund letter written by a mom whose four year old son was diagnosed in 2020. It gives you an idea about how important this organization is:
My husband, the sole provider for our family, was unemployed due to the pandemic and now needed to stay home to take care of our other two kids while I stayed [in the hospital]. We were very stressed and panicked, but The Tomorrow Fund provided us with financial assistance in the form of daily stipends while [our son] was hospitalized; parking passes; and helped with some of our bills. The Tomorrow Fund also provided emotional support through the Parent Consultant, Social Workers, and Psychologists whose salaries they help pay. Programs like the Sibling Recognition Program, Adopt-A-Family and Camp Dotty are all provided by The Tomorrow Fund to support families. They helped provide an unforgettable Christmas the first year [our son] was in treatment. We love the Tomorrow Fund and appreciate their help.
Yes it's a great cause! That's why we feature The Tomorrow Fund at Second Serve!

I am excited to participate. If you want to stroll with me please contact me at email@example.com and we can coordinate. I will be staying late to visit The Container Store, so I can gawk at the prices and come out with nothing. I will also hit J. Crew and make note of what to look for on the resale market. And then there is L.L. Bean, which I will enjoy but also also lament, because there is something special about making me trek to Freeport Maine to shop. And then finally, I will go to Newport Creamy for an Awful Awful, to replenish my calories burned on the stroll. Awfully Big, Awfully Good. I hope it's still there!
See you at Garden City on April 3!
