This is my third year running the 1/2 marathon for Healing Meals...No I haven't committed to the full yet, but I am so happy to have some of my Harper and Whitfield co-workers running this year. We are thrilled to join such a great organization that does amazing things for those in need. Any donation you give is greatly appreciated.
Some information about our charity: Healing Meals Community Project supports patients and their families facing a health crisis such as cancer and the work they are doing in our community changes lives. 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. They 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 or donate! 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.
