Positively Transforming Communities Hero Award
Our 2019 PTC Hero Award went to Grace Choi. Grace started the nonprofit Eunoia in 2016, when she was a sophomore in high school. Eunoia was created to lend a helping hand to teens in the local Sacramento community, providing them with clothes, food, school supplies, scholarships and other essential supplies to teens in the area. The organization also supports local teens in volunteering and participating in acts of service that will benefit the community. Grace is now at Cornell, with plans to start an east coast chapter of Eunoia.
Congratulations to our first ever PTC (Positively Transforming Communities) Hero Award, Bethie Coverdale, a senior at Sunapee High School, who is headed to Norwich University in the fall. For her senior project Bethie decided to hike 22 peaks (many times with veterans) in New Hampshire to bring awareness to the 22 veterans who commit suicide in the US each day. As we know, veteran suicide is a very real crisis and RRCF supports veterans and their families who are affected by it in a variety of ways. Her inspiring story has been highlighted in this video on ESPN.
