RSVP Walk-A-Thon Benefits Seniors – NRVNews

RSVP of Montgomery and Radford County hosted a walk-a-thon to benefit the 15e Annual supplies for the elderly. The event took place on Friday, October 28 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Christiansburg Recreation Center.

In January 2023, the RSVP Supplies for Seniors project will provide many homebound seniors and veterans with personal and household supplies when bad weather and high heating bills increase their level of difficulty. Christiansburg Recreation Center Manager Brad Epperley led the first round and 12 RSVP volunteers and community members marched 299 laps or 37 miles to launch the Supplies for Seniors fundraising event. To date, $2,773 has been raised.

Congratulations to those who won prizes at the event:

  • $100 BP gas card (given by Remon Yassa) for the most laps completed by an individual – Steve Huppert
  • $50 gift card for the highest amount raised by an individual – Sharon Brown
  • $25 gift card for the best costume – Barbara Parris

We would like to thank the companies/organizations in the photo for sponsoring the event. We would also like to thank Tammy Caldwell of Christiansburg Recreation Center for providing lunch during the Walk-A-Thon and Carilion NRV Medical Center for donating bottled water.

We are asking for monetary donations; however, we will be accepting donations of needed items during the month of November. For more information, please call 382-5775 or email [email protected]
