Abstract

"City" piece on Katherine Freund, 51, founder of the Independent Transportation Network (ITN) in Westbrook, who will be walking Portland's Back Cove for 24 hours nonstop on May 3-4 in a last-ditch effort to raise funding for her program. ITC received $1.2 million in seed-money from the federal government five years ago to furnish transportation for seniors who can't drive. At the end of five years, ITN was supposed to be self-sustaining, but it is not. An official ITN Members March will take place on May 4, but Freund worries that might not raise enough money, so she has decided to make her own, personal gesture a day earlier. Her fundraising goal is $100,000, plus another 100 volunteers to commit to the program.
