Ellen's Run is an annual race held in memory of Ellen Vala Schneider. A long-time resident of Section V in Chevy Chase, Ellen was a tireless volunteer in a wide range of community programs. In her memory, friends and colleagues created the annual Ellen's Run, to raise money for the B-CC HS Community Scholarship Fund, which Ellen chaired, and the Mental Health Association of Montgomery County, where Ellen served on the board, through the Ellen Vala Schneider Fund at the Community Foundation for Montgomery County, a 501(c)(3) organization, which will distribute the money raised to the two groups that benefit from Ellen's Run.
Tax-deductible donations may be made directly to Ellen's Run. Mail your check, payable to Ellen's Run 2012, to: Ellen's Run, c/o Carole Brand, 7011 Fulton Street, Chevy Chase, MD 20815.
