Residents and staff of The Virginia Home, a non-profit residential facility for adults with irreversible disabilities, are sponsoring a charity fundraising event in support of The Hospital Hospitality House. The 15th Annual “Aquathon,” is an event in which participants swim for pledges and then donate funds to the charity of their choice. The event will take place at The Virginia Home’s indoor pool located at 1101 Hampton Street in Richmond, Va. 23220. The schedule is as follows:

Wednesday, December 5th

Day 1:  swimmers will swim from 9:30a-10:00a and from 1:00-2:00p.

Thursday, December 6th

Day 2:  swimmers will swim from 9:30-10:30a and from 1:00-2:00p.

Friday, December 7th

Day 3: swimmers will swim from 9:00-11:30a and from 1:00-3:00p.

This year, residents chose The Hospital Hospitality House as beneficiary. Having a loved one in the hospital or undergoing rehabilitation is hard enough. Being away from home can make it even harder. The Hospital Hospitality House, located on East Marshall Street, gives patients and their families “a place to call home” during their stay in Richmond. Since opening their doors in 1984, HHH has served over 130,000 guests from across Virginia, the United States and world.

This Aquathon has raised nearly $78,000 for national and area nonprofits since its inception. Residents of The Home conceived the idea as a way to give back to a community that has been so supportive of them over the years. “Particularly during a traditional time of giving,” says Belinda Falconer, Director of Development, “our residents are eager to give something back to a community that has been so supportive of them. It is inspiring to see these individuals reach out to help someone else in need. It’s what the spirit of the season is all about.”
