According to founder Connor Archer, when June arrives every year, the busiest season has arrived. "June typically has been the big month of each year, as we are wrapping up one fundraiser, and then starting many more fundraisers" said Archer.
Archer will begin his check presentations to local programs that help young children with challenges starting tomorrow, and going throughout the next two weeks. There are seven organizations to present checks to so that will take a few days to get through.
On Thursday June 9th, Archer will announce the two scholarship winners to his own graduating class at Old Town High School. This will be the second class of scholarship recipients that the project has selected.
The project is focusing a lot of June into completing paperwork to go non-profit. "It is a move that the project needs to make in a quickly matter" according to Archer. He hopes to have this paperwork processed by June 24, so he can enter 2017 as an official non-profit organization.
Dates for the 3rd annual Courageous Steps Back to School Drive, and another benefit dinner at the Old Town Governor's Restaurant later this summer. "I am thinking of other fundraisers to plan over the summer, hoping to engage the community and help more programs" said Archer, who thinks having more fundraisers that engage the community will help grow the project.
A final total from the 3rd annual walk-run fundraiser will be revealed in the next couple of weeks, when all the totals are added up.
