PORTLAND — A locally based relief organization will host a walk around the Back Cove Trail on Saturday, June 4, to raise money for Haiti.

Registration for the 10 a.m. event will take place at 9 a.m. in Payson Park.

The registration fee is $10, and the proceeds will benefit the Konbit Sante Cap-Haitien Heath Partnership, which works to increase local capacity to deliver health care in northern Haiti.

There will also be several events throughout the morning and early afternoon, including Haitian troubadour music by Gifrants, storytelling by Charlot Lucien and deejay Harold Similien. Haitian metal art will also be on display and for sale.

Dogs on leashes and strollers are welcome.
