TAPPAHANNOCK – On October 19, 120 runners and walkers participated in St. Margaret's 15th Annual Rappahannock River Run/Walk. The St. Margaret's Alumnae Association chose The Haven, a local non-profit organization committed to preventing and eliminating all types of domestic violence and sexual assault, as their 2013 non-profit partner. In addition to helping to promote Domestic Violence Awareness Month, St. Margaret's also donated a portion of the proceeds from the race.
On November 13, St. Margaret's Head of School Lindy Williams and Race Coordinator Lindsay Harmon presented The Haven's Community Relations Coordinator Sandy Longest with a check that represented a portion of the event's proceeds for this deserving organization.
