We had over 50 runners on our team and a crowd of over 65 who came to our pre-race carbo-load dinner at Fire House 15 Cafe. Special thanks to our sponsors Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church and M&T Bank and our Ampersand Board who coordinated the event. To view photos from the event, visit our Facebook page.

Martha & Tony Danced anto a New Decade

Thank you to all of our friends who came out to dance with Martha & Tony to celebrate their 70th birthday April 11th. We had a blast! When asked about his age, Tony said, "It's mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter!" State Delegates Chris Peace and Jennifer L. McClellan presented a special resolution passed by the Virginia House of Delegates to honor Martha and her work with Boaz & Ruth. Photos from the event are on our Facebook page
