Correctional Case Records Analyst Diane Shepherd, founder of Correctional Workers Who Care, reports the recent charity walk in Sacramento was a resounding success.

Dubbed the Soul Stroll for Health, the fundraiser benefits families served by St. John Shelter and the Children’s Receiving Home. Funds also help pay for a Christmas breakfast and toy giveaway at the Sam and Bonnie Pannell Center. The walk was held in early August.

The stroll also supported the County of Sacramento Black Infant Health program, which provides resources and services to improve the health of women and infants.

“We were able to raise approximately $4,800 for the Black Infant Health Program for healthy moms and babies,” she said.
