REFIT® Fitness Instructor, Teresa Erger and the REFIT group presented the Virginia Gay Hospital Health Care Foundation board members with a donation of $1,023 to the Reach Out and Read program on Tuesday evening, August 1. It included $511.50 donated by class participants with the balance being a match from an anonymous donor.
The class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 pm at the Vinton Skate & Activity Center. The cost to participants is a goodwill offering with funds received above the operating cost being donated to local non-profit or special needs.
The Reach Out & Read program began in 2014 at Virginia Gay Hospital with presentations to the community by Dr. Maggie Mangold, M.D. and Jen Blix, LPN from the Vinton Family Medical Clinic. A donation of $20 makes it possible to provide books for one child throughout the year. Books are given to young children in all four of the family medical clinics in the Virginia Gay Hospital network (Atkins, Urbana, Van Horne and Vinton). If you would like more information or would like to donate to Reach Out Read or any of the other Virginia Gay Hospital Health Care Foundation programs, please visit www.myvghfoundation.org
Thank you Teresa and REFIT® for the generous donation!
