Since moving up to the White Mountains we have found it difficult
to continue the annual walk for violence awareness. However,
our commitment to educate about violence awareness and to promote
peace is as strong as ever. In December of 2010, Jane and Amy
retired from the Board of Directors of the Garden of Peace,
a Massachusetts memorial honoring victims of homicide. www.gardenofpeacememorial.org.
Although no longer on the board, they continue to remain active
and committed to this organization.
Since November of 2012 when we launched this new initiative
the Chris Maki Memorial Foundation has provided scholarships
for TIGER visits to multiple schools in Massachusetts, including:
Lunenburg Elementary, Middle, and High Schools
St. Anthony's (Fitchburg)
