The second annual Runway 5K for the Treehouse Foundation soared to new heights this year, with great running and walking weather AND NO RAIN!!! We extend our heartfelt thanks to all No Sparks donors and participants who made this event an astounding success. 

This year, the Northampton Airport runway was brimming with energy as 300 dedicated runners and walkers showed up for the opportunity to run on that runway and raise money to support foster care innovation. Over $100,000 was raised, a testament to the incredible generosity and commitment of our supporters. Among the standout efforts, Elm’s Team No Sparks blazed a trail, securing the title for raising the most funds, a whopping $8,850! Your passion and dedication exemplify the spirit of camaraderie that defines the Runway 5K.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to next year’s Runway 5K!

Elm Gives Back

Elm employees came together to lend a helping hand at the Westfield Soup Kitchen last Friday. Partnering with WTA Culinary, they served up a delectable breakfast-for-dinner feast that left taste buds tingling with delight. From the egg casserole and French toast, bacon, sausage and home fries crafted by WTA Culinary to the fresh fruit and pastries generously provided by Elm employees, the meal was infused with care and compassion.

We served a nourishing meal to 70 individuals, spreading warmth and sustenance to those in need. Thank you to Britt, Steve, Tina-Marie, Todd, Deana, Cheryl, Rose and Holly for their donations of fruit and goodies and to the serving team of Deana, Cheryl, Tina-Marie, Holly and Beth! It was a fun, easy, fulfilling couple of hours.
