WELLINGTON – Over 60 participants came out for the annual Wellington Professional Women’s (WPWC) walk/run to raise funds for Hearts United Give Support (HUGS) on Saturday, May 30 at the WAV parking lot at 506 Corsicana St.
Families, friends and individuals signed in with organizers Sierra Hartman, Kimberly Holland Whitney Wiebe between 8:30 and 9 a.m. Each entered the walking trail observing the COVID-19 safety guidelines for public gatherings.
“We were so happy to have such a wonderful turnout from the community,” said Hartman. “We were able to double our donation from last year!”
The entry fee of $20 with a T-shirt for adults and $15 for children added up as organizers ran out of T-shirts but plan to place another order for the popular attire.
Sponsors for the event include Collingsworth General Hospital, Wellington State Bank, Greenbelt Electric Cooperative, 1st Wellington Agency, Helena Agri-Enterprises, LLC, Weatherly Roofing, Bawcom Supply and Memphis’ Got Ink.
Marcia Henard won the Market Street gift card given away to event participants.
“If anyone is interested in being a part of the Wellington Women’s Club, they can contact Candy Powell and learn more about the many great things we are proud to do in this community,” added Hartman.
In its third year of operation, HUGS is a nonprofit, support organization exclusively for charitable purposes to provide assistance and support to local cancer patients. HUGS applications can be picked up from Shannon West or Renee Hanna at Wellington State Bank.
