Many people in the community received the official 6th Annual Run For The Money donor forms in the mail this week from the Community Foundation of Gaston County.
Over 100 nonprofit organizations benefit from contributions to the Community Foundation through this event. Since its inception, the Run For The Money event has raised over $5 million with $1.4 million coming from the Community Foundation itself.
With the recent cutbacks by the United Way to emergency service organizations, it is a prudent and wise investment of donor directed funds to this annual event.
Mark April 19 on your calendars and participate in the 5K run or 2K fun-walk, but more importantly, make a contribution to one or more of the organizations listed and approved for participation.
You do need to obtain and official form and those can be received directly from participating agencies and the Community Foundation.
