TOWNSEND – The Townsend Chamber of Commerce’s annual Ghost Stroll Walk begins Sunday and an organization is raising funds for adapted fitness.
“We shut down Broadway and all the companies are participating and giving out candy,” said Monique Prevel, executive director of Big Sky Autism Project.
Prevel says the Halloween event will bring fun for everyone, and the nonprofit is running a fun game for kids.
“We’ll have five mystery buckets. And you put your hand in each one, and you can’t look, and you guess what’s in it. And the correct guesses get a raffle ticket for our raffles,” a said Prevel.
By paying $ 5 to participate in their game or $ 20 to get a tarot reading, the money will be used to help the nonprofit expand its services and fund a Fun Run in April.
The organization offers autistic children and their families the opportunity to refine their motor skills by creating workouts tailored to their needs.
“We have the ability in our programs to offer everything related to fitness for the whole family and adaptive fitness is where we focus most of our energy,” said Prevel.
Prevel says providing the workouts and even participating in the Halloween festivities shows how supportive Townsend is.
“Being able to provide this to the community as an organization is just phenomenal because we are so part of this community individually that we are just one big family. The whole community is one big family, ”said Prevel.
Big Sky Autism Project is also having a raffle for a $ 250 Rocky Mountain Supply Gift Card, and they will be drawing the raffle at 5 p.m.
