KV Challenge nets more than $48,000


The Intelligencer

The Keith Valley Challenge, the annual floor hockey fundraising marathon held this year on Feb. 10 and Feb. 11, raised $48,478 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Crossroads Hospice was among the dozens of organizations that joined together for the event hosted by Keith Valley Middle School's eighth-grade students.

Crossroads was one contributor who gave the highest level of corporate sponsorship and was recognized with a bulletin board and banner in its honor.

"It's an honor for Crossroads Hospice to participate in this year's Keith Valley Challenge. We're proud to contribute to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and support its mission of giving hope to children with life threatening illnesses," said Crossroad's Hospice volunteer coordinator Kim Mumper in a press release.

The Keith Valley Challenge began in 1977 to honor the memory of eighth-grade student Billy Whitehead. Each year, administrators, faculty, staff and eighth-grade students sponsor a hockey marathon to raise money for charity. Keith Valley students, with the support of local businesses throughout Hatboro and Horsham, have raised more than $700,000 for charities to date. Crossroads Hospice is in Plymouth Meeting and serves the greater Philadelphia area.
