The Bettie Jane Cancer Foundation was formed in 2011 after our leader, Bettie Jane Bryant, received treatment for breast cancer. She realized the significant cost of health care and other expenses during her treatment. With her leadership, her dance students and staff organized the first Annual 5K Walk which started our journey to support local patients battling cancer. She continues to lead this walk each year; we celebrated our 10th annual walk this spring. This is one of the many events the all volunteer group supports each year.
The Richard Carbaugh Hope Foundation is an organization founded by his mother, Gina Carbaugh, in January 2014. The inspiration behind the establishment of the foundation is attributed to Richard, and his dream to help and support those suffering from drug addiction. His passion spawned from his own personal struggles and experience with addiction; which made his desire to help others that much stronger. Drug addiction can not only ruins lives, but take them as well.
