Join us for "Sharon's Walk"
in New Bedford on September 30

Southcoast and FUN 107 are teaming up again for Sharon's Walk, the third annual memorial walk and family-friendly event to honor Sharon and Elaine Fogaren.

Sharon's Walk will be held on Sunday, September 30, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Fort Taber, 1000 Rodney French Boulevard in New Bedford. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care.

Sharon's Walk is a 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) walk that will take place around Fort Taber. Registration begins at 9 a.m with the event kicking-off at 11 a.m. Participants are welcome to join the walk at any time during the event. The family friendly event includes entertainment, refreshments, children's activities, raffles and more. Free health screenings will also be provided by the Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care and the Southcoast Health Van.

Sharon Fogaren, the long time co-host of the "J.R. & Sharon" morning radio show on FUN 107, passed away after a brief illness in 2009 at the young age of 43. Sharon's mother, Elaine, passed away in 2004 after a battle with breast cancer. It was Sharon's dream to host a walk to honor her mother and to help raise awareness about breast cancer and local cancer care.

Get your children ready for back to school

If you've got school-aged children at home, you are probably busy getting ready for the new school year.

Going back to school unleashes a flood of feelings for kids — excitement, anticipation and, of course, a little sadness for those summer days gone so quickly.

For most parents, it means life is a little more stressful and expensive as we try to adjust to new schedules and try to fit shopping for those last few items of clothing and school supplies into an already busy calendar.

Get tips for better school lunches, backpack safety and tips for athletes returning to the field.

Join us in Fall River on August 28!
