SARATOGA SPRINGS (NEWS10) – The Wesley Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Wesley Community, announced the results of its “Share A Step” virtual fundraiser. The fundraiser raised $104,300 to support local seniors at The Wesley Community.

Approximately 100 community members – which is double the number from 2020 – participated in “Share A Step,” in May. The program invited community members to work toward a fitness-oriented goal while raising funds.

Participants this year logged more than 1,470 miles and helped bring the total amount raised for The Wesley Foundation to more than $140,000 since it began in 2018.

“It has been tremendously rewarding to see how popular our ‘Share A Step’ fundraiser has become over the past several years,” said J. Brian Nealon, CEO of The Wesley Community. “The funds raised will go a long way in helping to support the many seniors on our campus. We are extremely grateful to all of the participants, sponsors and supporters of this event.”

Donations will support the second phase of renovations at the Springs Building of Wesley Health Care Center. The project will create a contemporary, efficient and home-like environment on the Springs Building’s second, third and fourth floors. Phase one of the project was completed in 2016.
