We are excited to announce that our Title Sponsor will be Pohanka of Salisbury for a 2nd year! Pohanka was a great partner in 2018 and we look forward to having them on board for 2019.
Did you know that Pohanka of Salisbury has a program that gives back to local charities, called Pohanka Pays It Forward?
Pohanka’s Pay it Forward program was founded in the midst of the recession in 2009 by its VP/Dealer Operator, Sandy Fitzgerald-Angello. The recession hit the automotive community hard, especially on Delmarva where over 30% of new car franchises actually went out of business between 2007 and 2009. All the while non-profits needed our support more than ever. Advertising budgets dried up and non-profits were the first to be cut by most businesses. Instead of cutting charitable giving, Sandy did just the opposite and started Pohanka Pays it Forward. Since its foundation in 2009, Pohanka of Salisbury has donated over $1,000,000.00 to 750 charitable organizations and counting. Pohanka continues paying it forward every day to charities all across the Eastern Shore. It is Sandy’s belief along with our employees that nothing is more important than giving back to the community that we all work, live and raise our families in.
The Eastern Shore Running Club (ESRC) is a Salisbury, Maryland-based nonprofit organization founded to promote and advocate for the running community on Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore.
In 2017, ESRC created the Shore’s first scholarship for youth runners in partnership with the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore. The club will provide an annual award to a graduating senior from the three lower counties who has a demonstrated passion for running, among other criteria.
This club is the primary running club for our area! Not only do they participate in Running events, they also help produce them. Without their support, we would not be able to give you the best possible race that we could!
For just $15 a year, this is a great way to give back to the running community! We are excited that we will be a part of their Scholarship giveaway in 2019!!
