Pay it Forward event to be held Oct. 4


PPIFNay It Forward Networking (PIFN) will hold its inaugural Pay It Forward Networking Walk, Run or Roll Saturday, Oct 4, at the Louisiana Boardwalk in Bossier City.

The event, held in Memory of Lexi Gordon, is family friendly and open to the public. All children are welcome! Local sports and cheer teams are welcome to attend as well. There will be face painting and many other fun activities.

“Uncle” Si Robertson from the hit A&E show Duck Dynasty will be the special guest. He will lead Si’s Sweet Tea Team, which will consist of all previous PIFN wish recipients!

Registration for the event can be done online at www.imathlete.com/events/PIFNWalkRunRoll or via mail.  Participants are encouraged to register early and can come as individuals or teams!  Prizes will be awarded to top teams.

“I am so excited for this event not only to raise awareness about PIFN but also to celebrate our previous wish recipients and bring everyone together!  I am still amazed that in less than a year our network has grown to over 10,000 people since we began September 16, 2013 and we have granted wishes to nearly 50 children with special needs.” says founder Kassi Robinson.

Pay It Forward Networking is a foundation that grants wishes through networking for children with special needs, facing adversity, and/or disabilities.  PIFN brings individuals together with the common goal of providing hope and dreams to children in those circumstances.  A wish granted gives these recipients a day of fun and a lifetime of comfort knowing the love and generosity in the world.  The wishes granted are made possible by individuals simply combining resources and using their connections for a greater cause.
