Raise money for Why Not A Pear

Based out of New Bedford, MA, we are committed to funding education, health and social enrichment initiatives for children. With a focus on programs that allow kids to be healthy, explore their worlds and build confidence, our goal is to create opportunities for all children to lead healthy, happy, inspired lives. Why Not A Pear is memorialized after Richard A. Perry, our Founder’s father. Richard was passionate about family, sports, education and serving the greater good – this foundation is a tribute to his life of dedicated community service. Thank you for supporting our organization in this years race! It is with our great honor and pleasure to give back to those who need it most. Without your support this wouldn't be possible.
