The Student National Environmental Health Association (SNEHA) will be participating in the 2017 Eau Claire Marathon to raise money for the Eau Claire Hoarding Task Force. SNEHA will be represented in the marathon by a relay team consisting of Nikita Orndorff, Alex Larson, Peter Husnik and Jacob Kentnich. Rachel Kennedy will be participating in the full marathon and Breanna Rheinschmidt, Jenna Ouradnik and Ginny Young will be running in the 5K.
The Hoarding Task Force of Eau Claire is a new initiative in the area that helps those suffering from hoarding to address the mental, social and environmental impacts of the disorder. Their goal is to work one-on-one with those who hoard to provide the least invasive solutions with the most positive outcomes. The hoarding task force brings in trained personnel to work with those who hoard to provide positive support, while helping to clean an area so it is safe for living. The Task Force helps to provide hotel stays to those suffering, while their homes are being restored, and support to family members whose relationships have suffered.
Donations to our charity will help to support the Hoarding Task Force in Eau Claire by providing background checks to those volunteering, support in the roll outs – the cleaning of the homes, hotel stays and supplies as needed.
We are very excited to have the opportunity to provide support to such a worthy local cause! Please consider helping us support such an impactful cause that will make a significant impact on the lives of many suffering in the Eau Claire community!
