On behalf of United Way of East Central Alabama, it is with heartfelt gratitude that I write this letter. I am overwhelmed, although not surprised, at how our community came together to support the Whirlwind of Color 5K celebrating the recovery from the devastating storms of April 27, 2011.

We live in a community full of people with giving hearts resulting in more than $10,000 raised through this event for our local United Way.

Special thanks to the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce for hosting, organizing and working tirelessly to ensure that this inaugural 5K run was a success. Special thanks to everyone who participated, whether as a runner, organizer or volunteer. And a big thanks to all the corporate sponsors that underwrote the expenses of the event.

Your decision to participate will result in making a positive impact on our residents and our community. Thank you for your continued support of United Way, and thank you for choosing to “Live United.”
