SPARK Kindness Crew Pop Up Popcorn & Marathon Poster Making Party 

Saturday, October 9 | 10am-1pm at Mile 10/outside Paper Fiesta on Rt 135/ 27, Natick

Join the SPARK Kindness Crew and spread kindness from the Natick Common to our neighborhoods and all the way to downtown Boston for Marathon Monday! Come with your inspirational and supportive messages for runners, we’ll supply sidewalk chalk, paper and markers for your posters and some popcorn snacks, too as we connect communities through kindness.

Help us support all of our Boston Marathoners, including SPARK runners Jennifer DelRey and Jenny Sack, and cheer for folks who are running their virtual marathons through Natick that day, too!

The Kindness Crew is a growing team of SPARK volunteers who support opportunities for connection in our community through random acts of kindness and fun. We assemble the team as needed to spread joy, inspire interaction, and support the efforts of SPARK Kindness. Participation on any level of commitment from all members of our community is welcome!

How to Navigate Re-entry Stress 

Wednesday, October 20 | 7pm via Zoom

SPARK Kindness invites the community to a FREE program with Christine Koh, PhD. During the pandemic, many families delighted in a slower, more intentional way of life and are now overwhelmed by the demands and pressures of re-entry. Author and podcaster, Christine Koh will share practical advice for how to navigate re-entry stress, including tactics to manage calendar creep, maintain boundaries, protect time for yourself and with your family, and continue to tap into the things you and your family truly care about. 

ASL interpretation will be provided at this event.
