Thanks to all of you who came out on an absolutely gorgeous Saturday morning and either ran, walked, volunteered or supported the Justin’s Beach House annual Run/Walk in Bethany Beach. Contractors for a Cause was the presenting sponsor of this event, with over 1,000 participants! This event, once again, highlighted the outstanding community in which we live!
An important part of the morning’s activities was the appearance of the guests who were currently staying at Justin’s Beach House. They were thrilled to be in Bethany and happy to have such a beautiful place to stay. This is what makes being a part of this charity so worthwhile!
Every guest who stays at the house writes a synopsis of the visit, and this journal has been kept up since the first visitors stayed in 2010. Guests have ranged in age from 1 year young to 87 years old, and they have written comments such as, “We had an amazing stay. We are so appreciative of the opportunity to be able to stay here and relax after a really tough year.”
One also wrote, “Staying here for the week freed our minds from the stress of reality and cancer for the time-being.” And this one was spot on: “What a very friendly town!”
So again we offer our thanks for being part of this Memorial Day tradition and ask you to come again next year, for, as another family wrote, “We are grateful to God, to Justin’s family and to the Bethany Beach community who made this all possible.” And you did!
