'Beat it for Benny' a success

Sunday, October 3, 2010

To the Editor:

Dear Wabash Valley,

On behalf of my family and I, I would like to thank everyone who participated in or volunteered for our MPS walk, "Beat it for Benny."

Fundraisers like ours wouldn't be possible without people like you.

We raised nearly $16,000 that will go directly to finding a cure, not to mention raising awareness for a devastating disease. We would like to also specifically thank Dever Distributing of Terre Haute, Shire Pharmaceuticals, The League of Foresters, Dad's Root Beer, Dominoes Pizza, Square Donuts, Pizza Hut, Papa John's, Kroger, Intrepid Health Care, Forest Park School, Rachel Swank, Jaclyn Linton and StarBucks.

Their generous donations made "Beat it for Benny" the amazing event it was intended to be.

Thanks again Wabash Valley. We beat it for Benny!

Thank you very much.


Emily Durcholz,
