I am running the Covered Bridges Half Marathon again this year to support The Family Place, and I hope you'll be able to help! The Family Place is an incredible organization that provides many different kinds of support services to parents and children in the Upper Valley.
In their own words, "The Family Place is a private, non-profit organization and one of 15 legislatively-designated Parent Child Centers in Vermont. As such, we play a vital role in our community’s social safety net. Our work involves a whole-family approach to helping children thrive. We work with children and caregivers together, promoting positive parenting strategies and ensuring that children have the kinds of experiences that support their physical development, their social functioning, their ability to learn, and their long-term health. Through home visits, early intervention for infants and toddlers with developmental delays, nursing services, parenting classes and groups, treatment for families dealing with the trauma of sexual abuse, assistance with child care costs, intensive wrap-around supports for young families in poverty, community playgroups, and more, The Family Place partners with families to increase the presence of “protective factors”, things that all families need to be strong and thrive."

If you would prefer to send a check rather than donating online, please note my name in the memo line so they know to credit my fundraising efforts and send checks to:

We are a team of runners supporting The Family Place in its 33rd year of providing education, support and services to Upper Valley children and families.
Our team members have committed to raising at least $500 each by running in the Covered Bridges Half Marathon on Sunday, June 3, 2019. Money from fundraisers like the Covered Bridges Half Marathon is vital to The Family Place because it isn't earmarked for any specific program; instead it can be applied to wherever the need is greatest. It's only with the support of our generous community that we can provide continuous, comprehensive services to every family!
