Scholarship decisions were made after careful review and recommendation from the Will2Walk Scholarship Committee.
“For this cycle, we received 36 applications totaling almost $165,000 in requests,” noted Jen Chaillie, Will2Walk Vice President and Committee Chair. “Unfortunately, due to minimal event income during the pandemic, we were extremely limited in what we could award. The need is great, and your support is more crucial than ever to continue to provide these scholarships!”
Many thanks to committee member LaRonda Hart and Executive Director Mary Vandenberg for their participation in the decision process. For more information on our Scholarship Program, click here, or donate today to help us provide future scholarships!
