A year and a half ago we lost a father, a papa, my fishing partner, buddy, and all around great man. I've known my wife for 20 years. And in that 20 years I've seen the toll that cancer takes on a family. Even when spirits are high, things are tough. Sometimes when you're going through the struggle, all you need is a little extra help to make life just a little easier. I've watched my wife support this amazing cause, Healing Meals, for the past several years. Seeing her devotion and passion, as someone who has gone through it all, has inspired me to get off the couch to support this organization. They are on a mission to raise $75,000 through their charity 5k at the Hartford Marathon to make life just a little easier for more families in our community. Please consider donating to this great organization. Yes, you read that right, I'm going to run a 5k. Darcy's fundraising goal is $630, mine is $631.
Healing Meals Community Project has a dual mission to provide healthy, organic meals to people in a health crisis, while fostering compassion and empowering youth and adult volunteers in our communities.
We are the only non-profit in Connecticut that experientially teaches volunteers about nutrient-rich foods from start-to-finish while helping those in a health crisis heal. Volunteers have the opportunity to plant and harvest produce from our organic garden, prep food, cook, package and deliver healing meals to those in need. The experience is transformational for all.
The Eversource Hartford Marathon is our largest fundraiser of the year and we would love to have you join our team! With your support our Love Guided Team can raise $75,000, which will allow us to serve another 8,000 meals, increase the number of youth we empower and expand our education program to help our community take control of their health to prevent disease.
Please help more families receive the love and nutrition Healing Meals can provide:
“There are no words worthy of expressing the support I feel by your delicious and nutritious meals. We have been enjoying each dish made and truly appreciate the kindness shown by such help. Your love is felt in each bite taken. I am fighting hard to win this battle with cancer and am eager to one day share good results from all the hard work. Much love to you all.”
