Dominion Foundation continues to lend strong support to Tucker Community Foundation's annual Run For It. Since 2007, Dominion has contributed $23,000 to the program to benefit teams representing community causes throughout the region.
Run For It raises awareness and support for participating nonprofit organizations, youth athletic and educational programs, civic groups, community projects and charities within Barbour, Grant, Preston, Pocahontas, Randolph, and Tucker counties in West Virginia and Garrett County, Md.
More than $66,000 will be awarded to the causes represented by qualifying teams and racers.
