Fox Valley Hands of Hope’s A Walk to Remember Fundraiser

September 23, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Fox Valley Hands of Hope’s A Walk to Remember fundraising event is a time when family and friends gather on a crisp fall morning and walk the beautiful Fox River loop in honor, or in memory, of a loved one. Participants can dedicate a portion of the course to a loved one. Bring a photo of your loved one to post on the “Memory Board” and personalized badges are given to all walkers honoring their loved one. The comfortable and beautiful 5k course, starting at the Peg Bond Center, 151 Island Avenue  in downtown Batavia, can be completed by most in under an hour.
Register today and start collecting pledges and make sure to register by September 11 to be sure to get a t-shirt!

There’s no question in my mind that the scholarship I received opened up possibilities.

Marianne Renner

Past Scholarship Recipient & Current Leadership Coach

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.
