Welcome from Eileen Curran and Bob Halloran!

Honorary Chairs, Event Committee

Dear Friends,

Bob and I have supported MARE and the Jordanís Furniture Walk/Run for Adoption for seven years now, and are thrilled to serve as this yearís Honorary Chairs.

Please join us at this yearís event! We support the Walk because itís the right thing to do - we need to help these kids find loving, supportive, and safe homes. Weíre encouraging walkers to form teams and take advantage of the opportunity to spread the word about adoption from foster care, and raise money for programs that help kids find the loving homes they need so much. And itís fun! Thereís music, balloons, people cheering you on, food, games, raffle prizes - our kids look forward to it every year. My favorite part is meeting so many of the families MARE has brought together. I love seeing the kids with their new families; itís the best example of whatís important in life Ė love and family.

Adopting our daughter Grace was hands-down the best thing Iíve done in my life. She made me a mom and a better person. When I married Bob, I got three terrific stepsons and Grace made our family complete. I didnít give birth to any of these children, but could not love them more if I had. You donít have to give life to give love and thatís what we have Ė a whole lot of love!

See you at Jordanís Furniture in Taunton on May 22nd! Letís make this the most successful Walk/Run for Adoption yet!

Why Support MARE?

With well-known programs like  Wednesday's Child on WBZ TV, and Sunday's Child  columns in the Boston Globe, MARE has helped over 6,500 children join their "forever families" so far.

"Help us find loving families and a place we can call HOME!"
