Greetings Brothers,

My name is Eric Morabito and I am and I am a member of the Cyprus Shrine in Glenmont, NY. I am contacting you in the hope that you will help me. On May 18th I will be setting out on my 5th annual Walking for Children walk to benefit the Shriners Hospitals in Springfield, Boston & Philadelphia and the Cyprus Shriners Transportation Fund. This will be a 9 day, 260+ mile trek from my home Lodge to the Cyprus Shrine Center in Albany, NY, then to the Springfield hospital and finally to the Boston Hospital.

I do this walk in an effort to raise awareness about what the Shriners do and to raise some money. I am asking that you help me by letting people know what I am doing and also by responding to this communication. I post where I have received positive feedback from and a few kind words really means a lot to me and those who follow my journey online.

If you have any questions, please contact me at: [email protected]

Fraternally yours,
