ASHLAND — $2,000 raised from Valor Run

ASHLAND - More than 200 runners participated in the second annual Valor Run, sponsored by King’s Daughters Medical Center and Marshall Orthopaedics on Saturday. KDMC presented a $2,000 check from proceeds to the Supportive Service for Veteran Families, a program of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

The SSVF promotes housing stability among very-low income veteran families who reside in or are transitioning to permanent housing. The VA has made it its mission to end veteran homelessness by 2015.

Lights of Love set for 30th year

RUSSELL - Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital will have the 30th installment of Lights of Love on Dec. 3.

The Adult Handbell Choir from Advanceā€ˆMemorial United Methodist Church in Flatwoods, under the direction of Diana Williams, will play at 6:15 p.m. at the front entrance. The Ironton High School Traveling Choir will sing at 6:30 p.m.

The annual tree lighting ceremony will follow. Two-year-old Evan Laber will light this year’s tree. Refreshments will be served.

With a $5 donation to Lights of Love, a Christmas light on the tree will be dedicated in honor or memory of a loved one. Proceeds benefit the hospital’s Lifeline service — a home-emergency response unit that provides seniors assistance at the push of a button.

The Lifeline system is a unit connected to the telephone, allowing the Lifeline user to utilize a small remote control to signal for help in the event of an emergency. A call center is notified to send help when signaled.
