TOWNWIDE FUND OF HUNTINGTON THANKSGIVING DAY 4 MILE
Thursday, November 23rd, 2017 8:30 AMOur annual Charity Thanksgiving Run is well attended and for many, has become a part of Thanksgiving traditions. The Four Mile Run draws more than 2,000 runners and the Family Fun Run is popular with school-age kids and families. Costumed runners add to the festive atmosphere, and the morning is always a great success. Bea Hartigan and Alex Borg, Co-Chairs, lead a team of dedicated volunteers whose enthusiasm, even on cold November mornings, is contagious. Each year the proceeds from this run are used to fund our grants to local agencies that provide vital health and human services to the Huntington community. The Townwide Fund of Huntington was founded in 1961 by a group of private citizens who wanted to help local charities raise funds. The organization's essential mission was to keep money raised in Huntington within the community. Now over 50 years and $10 million later, The Townwide Fund continues to infuse local organizations with the support they need to provide vital health and human services to the people of Huntington.
