By Lilianne Hernandez

The Anthony’s Light Foundation Inc., will be sponsoring a Walk and Run for Carbon Monoxide Awareness at Tropical Park’s Football Stadium, 7900 S.W. 40 St., on Nov. 10.

Registration for the event begins at 8:30 a.m. and the walk will start at 10:30 a.m. The event is part of the foundation’s second annual Walk & Safety Fair which will include food, music and raffles.

The foundation serves to spread awareness and prevention of carbon monoxide poisoning as well as provide internships and scholarships.

Established in 2004, Anthony’s Light is a non-profit organization that was established by Vilma Perez after her son, MDC alumnus Anthony J. Perez, died at the age of 25 from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Service learning and volunteer hours will be available to those attending.
