Kiki’s Garden Run for Kids

The dynamic father-daughter duo … Jeff Weller and Amber Weller Richardson … is gearing up for the Pell Bridge Run on Sunday, October 23rd.

“Our goal this year is to raise $2,500 for Kiki’s Garden Aspire Higher Scholarships, ” Amber related.  “Krista, our Kiki, loved Narragansett Bay and crossed the bay many times when she joined in the Save the Bay Swim.  Participating in the run is a fitting tribute to her memory. This will be the second year we’ve participated in the run and we are excited to be a part of this collective fundraiser for non-profits. ”
