SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Wesley Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Wesley Community, raised $104,300 to support local seniors served by The Wesley Community at its “Share A Step” virtual fundraiser.
Approximately 100 community members – double the number from last year - participated in the 2021 edition of “Share A Step,” which took place from May 21 through May 27 and invited community members to work towards a fitness-oriented goal while raising funds. Participants this year logged more than 1,470 miles and helped bring the total amount raised for The Wesley Foundation via the annual fundraiser to more than $140,000 since it began in 2018.
Donations received via the virtual fundraiser will support the second phase of renovations at the Springs Building of Wesley Health Care Center. The project will create a contemporary, efficient and home-like environment on the Springs Building’s second, third and fourth floors. Phase one of the project was completed in 2016. The Wesley Community is a non-profit senior living campus in Saratoga Springs with more than 700 residents.
The Wesley Community is a 37-acre, non-profit agency in Saratoga Springs that provides independent and assisted living for seniors, affordable independent senior housing, short-term rehabilitation and long-term care, as well as home care services and outpatient therapies available for people of all ages.
