The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our goal is to let Rhett's story inspire those who feel defeated, to uplift those who feel down and encourage people to take that first step and MOVE INTO LIFE.
On December 7, 2007, the "Runnin' for Rhett Non-Profit Foundation" was formed. As a result, in the spring of 2008 a total of nearly 400 people in all were able to participate in the event. A total of $12,500 was raised and the very first "Runnin' for Rhett" scholarship will be awarded to a deserving Sacramento County college student in the spring of 2009.
Rhett had many blessings and moved many people during his short life, but could not physically move by himself. He inspired so many people with his laugh and infectious smile that our goal is to let Rhett's story inspire those who feel defeated, to uplift those who feel down and to encourage people to take that first step, like Beth did in the spring of 2005, get up and out and MOVE INTO LIFE .
