St. Joseph's Charity Choice 5K

Date(s): 10/18/2014


1326 6th Avenue, Huntington, WV 25701
St. Joseph Catholic School and St. Joseph Central Catholic High School have joined hands together with Tyson’s Fight for a Cure – Pulmonary RRP, to host the 4th Annual 5K Race. Don’t forget that this year’s race is Saturday, October 18th, beginning at 8:30am. The event brings together the Tri-State community in a fun and safe environment in downtown Huntington. We encourage children of all ages to race with us.

This year’s benefactor, “Tyson’s Fight for a Cure,” is for Tyson, a 7th Grade Student at St. Joseph Catholic School. Tyson has been battling RRP since he was a baby. The disease has travelled into his lungs and unless a cure is found, the disease will completely destroy Tyson’s lungs. The Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, under the research of Dr. Wells, will do a RRP study using growths from Tyson’s lungs to find a drug that will hopefully cure the disease.

We encourage everyone to participate in this year’s event as a runner or walker, a sponsor or a volunteer.

If you have any questions, please contact Carol Gale at cgale@stjosephgs.org or Belinda Chapman at bchapman@stjosephhs.org.

Caregivers Care Fair

Date(s): 10/19/2014

Temple Israel's Social Action Committee is spearheading a "Caregivers Care Fair," to be held from 1-4 p.m. Oct. 19 at Temple Israel, 2312 Kanawha Blvd. E.

Many residents of the Kanawha Valley are thrust into being a “caregiver,” whether for a spouse, a parent, or a child. Often, it is difficult to find resources to help in the journey of medical, psychological, emotional, financial, and other demands. The Fair aims to aid in the process. It is free and open to the public.

Speakers for the event include
·  Marsha Meeks, WV S.H.I.P. (State Health Insurance Assistance Program) Director, talking about Medicare counseling and enrollment, and sharing info about her office’s programs, including health insurance products and in-home healthcare;
·   Jennifer Taylor, Ombudsman Attorney at Legal Aid of West Virginia, tackling estate planning, medical and financial powers of attorney, and living wills; and
·   Dr. Todd Goldberg, MD, gerontologist and Program Director for Geriatric Fellowship, WVU-Charleston, addressing issues of aging, including signs of the onset of dementia.

There are 20 – and counting – vendors who are participating in the Fair, including the Veteran's Administration, Right at Home, Senior Services, St. Francis Hospital, University of Charleston, Faith in Action of the Kanawha Valley, Relatives as Parents, and a host of others.

There will be a blood pressure screening and opportunities to speak to massage therapists, a nutritionist, a palliative care representative, and more.
Come to the Fair!
