Saratoga Springs, N.Y. – The Wesley Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Wesley Community – a 37-acre senior living campus with more than 700 residents in Saratoga Springs – invites Capital Region residents to take part in its “Share A Step” virtual fundraiser beginning Friday, May 21 through Thursday, May 27.
The weeklong fitness initiative offers participants the opportunity to raise funds for The Wesley Community while working towards a fitness-oriented goal, such as running or walking one mile per day or completing a 30-mile bike ride. Members track their workouts, share their progress on social media and encourage friends and family to support their efforts via a donation. Teams and individuals are welcome to participate and prizes are awarded for goals achieved during the event.
All donations generated through “Share A Step” will support the second phase of renovations at the Springs Building of Wesley Health Care Center. The project will create a contemporary, efficient and home-like environment on the building’s second, third and fourth floors. Phase one of the project was completed in 2016.
“Adirondack Trust is proud to be the presenting sponsor of this year’s ‘Share a Step’ fundraiser and this important fitness campaign to benefit The Wesley Community and the Springs Building renovation project,” said Charles V. Wait, Jr., President and CEO of Adirondack Trust. “We encourage members of the public to become involved, not just for their own personal wellness, but as a way to go above and beyond for the residents of The Wesley Community.”
“We are very excited for the fourth annual “Share a Step” fundraiser, as we raise funds to support the health and wellbeing of the seniors at The Wesley Community,” said J. Brian Nealon, CEO of The Wesley Community. “This event is an excellent example of the many ways that wellness can be creative and collaborative, with the public working towards a collective goal for the residents of our community.”
