Dulles Greenway Drive For Charity is Thursday, May 16

Tomorrow, Thursday, May 16, is the day. That's the day that paying the toll on the Dulles Greenway will have special meaning for local charities. It's the 8th annual Dulles Greenway Drive For Charity, a one-day event that raises thousands of dollars that go directly back into the local community.

According to a story in the Leesburg Patch, “Each year, the money raised has increased, and last year’s event raised $261,000, divided among five local charities: The March of Dimes, Loudoun Abused Women’s ShelterEvery Citizen Has Opportunity (ECHO)Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy and the Fresh Air/Full Care,” said Terry Hoffman, spokesman for the Dulles Greenway. “Regardless of what you think of the Greenway or if you do not usually drive on it, drive it May 16 to help these organizations.”

In addition, Hoffman said they have set up a Dulles Greenway Scholarship fund that awards 12 local students – one from each county high school – $1,500 scholarships. Students are selected based on citizenship and community service.
