The weeklong campaign, July 15-19, will include a Kindness Walk at the WARF.
The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation summer interns next week will conduct a campaign to promote community engagement and acts of kindness.
 
The “PATH to Kindness” project will include three main components: an ongoing scavenger hunt, pop-up events and a Kindness Walk.

The scavenger hunt and pop-up events will take place from Monday to Friday, July 15-19.

A community Kindness Walk will take place from 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, at the Warrenton Aquatic Recreation and Fitness Center (WARF). 
 
“These projects will show our community how an individual can enact change through kindness,” said Asma Noman, one of 12 PATH interns who created the project. “The pop-up events show that kindness can be spontaneous, while the Kindness Walk shows the magnitude of change we can accomplish when we act in kindness together.

“Each component of the project will illustrate how kindness can spark long-term change in our community.”

Participants at the WARF will have opportunities to complete acts of kindness, such as writing thank you notes to first responders, planting vegetables and creating a community mural.

Each person who completes the kindness walk will receive a prize and be entered into a drawing to donate up to $1,000 to a nonprofit of his or her choice. 

Those who complete the scavenger hunt also can submit photos of their activities to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to receive an extra chance to win. 

“The interns hope that this initiative will not end after this week,” said Margy Thomas, a PATH program associate. “PATH to Kindness aims to spark a change that goes beyond one day of kindness, encouraging kindness not only as an intentional action, but also as a habit.”
 
Pop-up events will take place throughout Fauquier, Rappahannock and Culpeper counties. The interns will distribute scavenger hunt participation cards at those events and at the Kindness Walk.
