September was a “good news month” for KyADAPT regarding two grants which the organization applied for earlier in the year.On September 12, Heart of Kentucky United Way representatives met with representatives of KyADAPT to announce that KyADAPT’s request for $10,000 in United Way funds has been approved. The grant funds will be used to continue and expand services to KyADAPT clients. Heart of Kentucky United Way’s service area includes Boyle, Garrard, Lincoln and Mercer Counties.
Earlier in the month, KyADAPT received a letter stating it will receive a $2100 grant from Hudson-Ellis Funds, which awards funds to charitable organizations serving Boyle County. The grant funds have already been received from the Blue Grass Community Foundation, which administers Hudson-Ellis awards. The funds will be used to purchase equipment and supplies for KyADAPT’s temporary office at the First Christian Church of Danville. The equipment and supplies will later be moved to KyADAPT’s permanent office space which will be provided by the Housing Authority of Danville.
KyADAPT expresses sincere thanks to our 2014 Fun Walk sponsors, donors and volunteers for their essential support in making the event a success. We are also grateful to those who participated in the Fun Walk and/or related activities.

KyADAPT hosted its Seventh Annual Fun Walk in Millennium Park in Danville on Sunday, September 14. The Fun Walk has traditionally been KyADAPT’s most successful fundraising event each year in terms of dollars earned for the organization and number of participants. A final tally of Fun Walk earnings is now being completed and the grand total of the earnings will be posted in this space very soon.
Approximately 120 persons participated in this year’s event, including clients, sponsors, Board members, members, walkers, spectators, and volunteers. Numerous individuals contributed to the Fun Walk’s success (more information on those contributions and photos of the event will also be posted in this space soon).
In addition to the two-mile walk, Fun Walk activities included music by The Five jazz quintet, the traditional Dog Bone Hunt and raffle drawing for prizes, and the sale of craft items, food and drinks.
KyADAPT is truly grateful for the donations of money, time and effort which made the 2014 Fun Walk a success.
