A walk to benefit teen shelter

To help celebrate its 20th anniversary, Sound Styles is hosting a fund-and-fun-raising walk from 8 – 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 8 to benefit TeenHope shelter for homeless teens.

The 3-mile walk begins at the downtown Edmonds shop and follows the foot path along the city’s waterfront. Entry fee is $20, which includes a “Walk” t-shirt and water bottle. Participants are asked to register before Wednesday, Oct. 5, at Sound Styles, 100 Fifth Ave. N. in Edmonds.

TeenHope is one of only four non-profit, emergency overnight shelters in the Northwest for troubled youth between the ages of 13 and 17, according to Jenny Murphy, a co-owner of women’s clothing-and-accessories store.

“Since 1985 our community and customers have supported our business and our 20th anniversary is one of those opportunities for us to give back and complete the circle of thanks”, Murphy said.
