LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A non-profit foundation raising money to build a house for veterans’ families to stay for free while their loved one is being treated at either Lexington VA medical facility, received a significant donation check Wednesday.
Columbia Gas of Kentucky and its NIVETS Employee Resource Group presented a check for $10,495 to Friends of Lexington Fisher House.
The donated proceeds came from the VA 5K road race fundraiser held last November at the VA Sousley Campus on Leestown Road in Lexington. Half of the money raised went to the Lexington Fisher House building project, the other half went to the Lexington VA Health Care System.
The popular annual road race was put on by Columbia Gas of Kentucky and its NIVETS Employee Resource Group and the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Department of Community Corrections, along with corporate sponsors and event participants.
Now is the time to act to help sponsor the 2019 VA 5K. To learn more about corporate sponsorship opportunities, contact event coordinator Susan Murray via email at email@example.com.
