Springfield Dam donates $750 to EdgarMay for healthy scholarships

Two Springfield organizations are working together to reinforce healthy, active lifestyles for Edgar May Rec center logoarea residents. The EdgarMay 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 a field of 253 registered runners and walkers, the Springfield Dam Run provides support to area charities, including this year, a $750 donation to the EdgarMay Scholarship Fund. A 501 C 3 non-profit organization, the EdgarMay Health and Recreation Center’s mission is to provide residents with the opportunities and resources necessary to pursue an active and healthy lifestyle. The EdgarMay Scholarship Fund provides more than $40,000 per year in scholarship support, and more than 200 EdgarMay 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,  consider a donation to the EdgarMay Scholarship Fund.  Donations can be sent to the EdgarMay Scholarship Fund, 140 Clinton St., Springfield Vt. 05156.
