BENEFITING: Upper Valley Haven, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2014
My name is Abby Emmons and I am a junior Nursing major from Lynchburg College. This June I will be running the 23rd Annual Covered Bridges Half Marathon. As part of the Upper Valley Haven team, I am hoping to raise $500 that will help local families in the Upper Valley who are struggling with homelessness and poverty. The Upper Valley Haven is a private not-for-profit organization, founded in 1980, that provides temporary shelter and educational programming for homeless families and adults, as well as food and clothing to those in need. We create a community where people find hope and discover possibility. All services are provided free of charge. I hope you will consider donating towards this cause, as there are many wonderful families in our region who's lives could be touched deeply by your kindness and generosity.
