Hanover — Some of the Upper Valley’s most prominent charities deal with serious issues such as homelessness, domestic violence and children receiving intensive care treatment.
At the Covered Bridges Half Marathon, those organizations have been able to run the picturesque course while uniting to raise vital funding.
Now in its 26th year, the race has long donated much of its proceeds to municipal and youth groups in the area. For the last 13 years, it also has welcomed charity teams, whose members are exempt from the popular race’s lightning-quick registration fill-up in exchange for pledging to raise money for the organizations they represent.
