To the editor: This will be the 11th year I "walk the walk" in September to help raise money for Elizabeth Freeman Center.

EFC is the agency in Berkshire County that provides both front-line services and advocacy for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. This time I'll be walking in Lee on Monday. We will start at Town Hall at 5:30 p.m.

We have already raised more than $93,000 but we really need to make our $110,000 goal. To make a donation, go to and search for "Rise Together." You can make a general donation or go to my page and help me pass my personal fundraising goal.

Join state Rep. William "Smitty" Pignatelli, Onyx Specialty Papers and me as we Rise Together for Safety & Justice. Bring a mask (and a friend).

Chin Lee, Lee
