On August 29, 2010 25 Haven guests, staff and board members participated in the CHaD Hero Half Marathon (1-mile Cam’s Course or the 5K walk). Everyone who participated on the Haven Heroes team had a wonderful experience giving back to the community, tackling a physical challenge, and learning more about each other as the team stuck together and supported one another through the finish.
It is not often that Staff, Board members and shelter guests get to give back to the community that supports us. CHaD supports sick kids, and has a commitment to treat any child in need regardless of whether they can afford to pay. The Haven supports the homeless and hungry and has a commitment to help all those in need free of charge. Both groups support health and well-being. This type of collaboration creates the greatest amount of change in our community.
The Haven Through 40 Years
The Haven will commemorate its four decades of service to the region by releasing 40 stories of people, events, ideas, and services fundamental to our mission. We will be releasing these stories weekly, so check back often.
