20 Dec VA 5K Proceeds Check Presented
Proceeds from the 2023 VA 5K fundraiser were presented during two check presentations at the Lexington Fisher House on December 19, 2023. The more than $46,000 raised during the eighth annual event in early November was split between the Friends of Lexington Fisher House and the Lexington VA Health Care System, in support of the Lexington Fisher House. A record number of event sponsors along with a strong contingent of race participants led to the impressive fundraising total benefiting veterans and their families. The organizing sponsors included the Columbia Gas NiVets Employee Resource Group, the NiSource Charitable Foundation, and the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government’s Division of Community Corrections. Susan Murray from Columbia Gas of Kentucky and Capt. Chuck Burton from LFUCG Community Corrections, served as co-race directors. In its eight years of existence, the VA 5K has raised $284,000 in support of the Lexington Fisher House and for veterans who use the Lexington VA Health Care System. Our sincere thanks to everyone who has sponsored, supported, and taken part in this outstanding event.
