Foundation invests in Run For It

Allen Staggers, representing FirstEnergy Foundation, delivered a Race Sponsor donation for Tucker Community Foundation’s annual Run For It program.

On hand to show appreciation was New Historic Thomas team captain Emily Wilson-Hauger of Davis, one of many racers competing for large cash awards that will benefit community causes in an eight county region. FirstEnergy has invested in the program annually since 2009.

Teams from Barbour, Preston, Pocahontas, Randolph and Tucker counties and Garrett County, Md., are registered for the Sept. 27 race and more team registrations are expected.

Race sponsor support for the Run For It program has helped generate more than $500,000 for communities throughout the region served by Tucker Community Foundation.
