UNION — A child will have the opportunity to participate in a very special athletic event in the nation’s capital thanks to the generosity of the Union Civitan Club.

On Tuesday, the Union Civitan Club welcomed Mrs. Stephanie Kitchens, Noah Hendrix and his mother, Mrs. Tracie Knox to their meeting at the Inn at Merridun.

During the meeting, Kitchens addressed the Civitans about Ainsley’s Angel of the Upstate. Kitchens, who is the organization’s local ambassador, said that Ainsley’s Angels works to ensure that everyone can experience endurance events and promotes inclusion in all walks of life through both education and activism.

The Civitans then made a donation for Noah to participate in the Marine Corps Marathon on Oct. 30 through Ainsley’s Angels. He and his mother will fly to Washington, DC to participate in the marathon. Mr. Curt Railey of Ainsley’s Angels will push Noah in the marathon.

For more information about Ainsley’s Angels of the Upstate visit www.ainsleysangels.org.

The Union Civitan Club meets the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 1 p.m. at the Inn at Merridun. To learn more about the Civitans, their activities, and becoming a member, contact any local Civitan.
