Charity - Upper Valley Haven

Hello all, 

I'll be running the Covered Bridges Half Marathon (CBHM) for the Upper Valley Haven on Sunday, June 3rd. The race starts in Pomfret, VT, goes through Woodstock, VT, and ends in Quechee, VT. This will be my third year running the CBHM for this charity and it may be the last as I'm planning on running the Vermont City Marathon next year, which takes place just a week before the CBHM. 

I know times are still tough for many folks out there or there are other obligations that take priority, so please don't feel obligated to donate. However, any amount you can give helps so if you are able to give even a small amount, you've helped families that have fallen on even harder times.

Here's what the Upper Valley Haven does:

"The Upper Valley Haven is a private not-for-profit organization, founded in 1981, that provides temporary shelter for homeless families and their children, as well as food, clothing and educational programming to those in need.  The Haven has fostered independence by providing resources through our shelter Advocacy, Aftercare and Educational programs.  All services are provided free of charge."

If you would like to help me support this worthy charity, please visit my FirstGiving charity page by clicking on the "Donate" button to the right.

Thank you for your support, 


Update: We raised $808 for the charity, well over my goal of $500. Thank you for your generosity, I know the Haven was very appreciative of the support.
