• As a walker/runner: A portion of your entry fee goes directly to the nonprofit you designate.
• As a donor: 100% of your donation goes to the nonprofit you designate. In addition, through the Community Foundation, the Fred and Peggy Paxton Endowment will make a matching contribution to that nonprofit's endowment fund.
The Foundation's purpose is to improve the quality of life in Western Kentucky, both today and in the future. Because of Mr. Paxton's vision and his family's continued commitment, the Community Foundation will match donations raised by each organization up to $10,000, until $100,000 is given away.
