Creative Living Team Finished the Race
But it's not too late to make a donation!

The Creative Living Team competed in the 27th Annual Feaster Five on Thanksgiving Day with more than 9,000 runners and walkers. With donations still coming in, the Team has raised $13,000 with a goal of $25,000. These funds will be used to enhance and expand our many recreational and social skills programs offered to local teenagers and adults with developmental disabilities.

"Since this is our one major fundraiser for this year, we were thrilled that more than 250 people donated. This will make such a difference as we look toward 2015," said Board President Lucille Giannone. "I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to our team and donors. What an outpouring of support!"

The 18-person Creative Living team included Andover residents Board President Lucille Giannone, Board Member Luan Giannone, Abigail Johnson, Alex Just, Board Member Katherine Keith, Elizabeth Koontz, Board Member Kim Thomson, and Danielle Benson. The team also included North Andover residents Chuck and Debbie Papalia, Heidi O'Mara and
Jeana Paolino; John and Jacquelyn (board member) Santini of Wilmington; Jessica Shattuck of Brighton; and Margaret Linnell of Berwick, Maine; Charles Bistany of Lawrence; Carol Hepworth of Chester, Mass.
