Share A Step for Seniors Fundraiser at The Wesley Community

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Wesley Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Wesley Community in Saratoga Springs, welcomes Capital Region residents to take part in its “Share A Step For Seniors” virtual fundraiser beginning Thursday, June 19.

The weeklong fitness initiative, which runs through June 26, offers participants the opportunity to raise funds for The Wesley Community while working towards a fitness-oriented goal, such as running or walking a mile per day or completing a 30-mile bike ride. Members track their workouts, share their progress on social media and encourage friends and family to support their efforts via a donation.

All donations generated through “Share A Step For Seniors” will support The Wesley Community’s continued efforts to serve its residents and staff during the coronavirus global health pandemic. The Wesley Community is a non-profit senior living campus in Saratoga Springs with more than 700 residents.

Brian Nealon, CEO of The Wesley Community. “We encourage participants to follow the guidelines from government and health officials during their fitness activities. All of us at The Wesley Community appreciate the continued support for this event.”
