Dam Run donates $750 for fitness scholarships

The Edgar May Health and Recreation Center and the Springfield Dam Run have come together to champion active lifestyles and help make sure that recreation can be accessible to all.

Now in its 11th year and with field of 253 registered runners and walkers, the Springfield Dam Run provides support to area charities, including this year, a $750 donation to the Edgar May Scholarship Fund. A 501 C 3 non-profit organization, the Edgar May Health and Recreation Center’s mission is to provide all residents of the region with the opportunities and resources necessary to pursue an active and healthy lifestyle.

The Edgar May Scholarship Fund provides more than $40,000 per year in scholarship support, and more than 200 Edgar May members receive some sort of financial assistance. To apply for assistance, a member must fill out a one-page application and provide proof of income.

If you want to be a part of promoting health and wellness in the Springfield area, please consider a donation to the Edgar May Scholarship Fund. Your donation will help fortify the effort to provide quality recreation and activity to all, and help encourage the growing number of people from all backgrounds who are looking to actively make positive change in their lives, and their community.

Donations can be sent to the Edgar May Scholarship Fund, 140 Clinton Street, Springfield, VT 05156. And again, many thanks to Joe Cerniglia, organizer of the Springfield Dam Run, and all the Dam runners and walkers who not only are embracing activity, but making it accessible to others as well.
