A local Charlottesville non-profit, The Sum, is offering free 1 to 2-hour diversity and equity trainings for any interested business or organization. Executive Director J. Elliott Cisneros says “The training will introduce a groundbreaking, asset-based model that is immediately applicable in business, healthcare, education, government, and faith communities. No organization is too big or too small.” Trainings can be held at your site or theirs (914 East Jefferson St., Suite G4, in Charlottesville). Cisneros says participants will walk away with a map for moving beyond blame, guilt, and confusion to clarity, strength, and solidarity across differences of race, gender, sexual orientation, culture and disability. And they will get experiential practice applying this framework to their field. Naomi Tutu, daughter of South African civil rights leader Desmond Tutu says, “These offerings are, without a doubt, the finest I’ve experienced in my years of doing this work.” For more information or to schedule your free training, visit www.thesum.org. Cisneros was formerly the Director of the Human Rights Office for the City of Fort Collins, CO., taught social justice classes at Naropa University in Boulder, CO., and was a school principal. He moved to Charlottesville after the events of August 12, 2017. The Sum provides online and in-person workshops and assessment to cultivate internal tools for personal and organizational effectiveness across our differences of race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, gender, dis/ ability, and socio-economic class, for a just and joyful life, community, organization and world where no one stands alone.

On February 2, 1969, Charlottesville City Council and the Albemarle Board of Supervisors voted to create the Region Ten Community Services Board to “build a strong community by assuring that high quality services are available and accessible to all the citizens of our region.” Over the years, Region Ten expanded its services to serve the behavioral health needs of the surrounding counties of Fluvanna, Louisa, Greene, and Nelson. “Fifty years ago, a group of consumers, family members and professionals came together to create a comprehensive range of community-based services that would enable vulnerable persons to remain in their home communities,” said retired Executive Director, Jim Peterson. Today Region Ten serves more than 9,000 community members each year, and has created nearly 500 full time jobs, which support the community. Region Ten gives thanks to all who have contributed to the successes the organization has achieved so far and applauds the group of concerned citizens committed to protecting and expanding the system of community-based services.

Charlottesville:

“T

A RUNNING TOWN

he whole Charlottesville area loves to run,” declares Dr. Francesca Conte who, with her partner, James Gill, operates Bad to the Bone Endurance Sports in Charlottesville. Conte is a UVA grad and both have a long-time passion for running and organizing events all over the country. “Physical fitness is a huge part of life here,” she says. “It’s always been part of the culture simply because it is such a great environment.”

Marathon Is a Big Positive On April 6, Bad to the Bone will operate the Charlottesville Marathon, Half-Marathon, 8K Run, and the popular Kids’ Mile. “The inaugural Charlottesville Marathon [in 2002] was the first event we

BY MARILYN PRIBUS

ever organized,” Conte recalls. “We both had been professional runners— that is, we ran for companies who sponsored us. James saw the need for a destination marathon and we had experience in the industry, and knew many companies and sponsors. So we did it.” The pair have organized at least six events every year since. That first Marathon attracted about 350 registered runners. And this year? “We’re expecting more than 1,500,” Conte says. “Many are from Virginia, DC, and Maryland, but about a fifth are from other states. We usually have many states represented plus international entries.” In the past, runners have come from as far away as Japan, Sweden, Italy, and Spain. “The marathon really kicks off the running season in Central Virginia,”

continues Conte. “The New York Times names us as one of the top five destination marathons in the whole country and Runner’s World Magazine lists this as one of the Best Races in the Best Places.” And spring in Charlottesville is certainly beautiful. “Some people come, run, and stay to buy a place,” Conte says. In addition, the runners and their supporters have a big dollar impact here every year. Bad to the Bone places conservative projections for this year at close to $650,000 counting hotel rooms, meals, transportation and associated activities. “Hotels are filled early and that figure doesn’t include any additional spending,” she says.

Running for Dollars A number of local events are worth far more than the typical race tee shirt because they raise money for various organizations. For example, the late-summer Charlottesville Women’s Four Miler, open to women runners and walkers, raises funds for the UVA Cancer Center Breast Care Program and to date has garnered more than $3.5 million! “I raised money for the Four Miler years ago when I was just getting into running,” recalls Jenn Dahl of Lake Monticello. “I have raced it, walked it, and jogged it. Raising money for a wonderful cause while doing something I love is a win-win.” While Dahl has moved on to marathons and finished a 100-mile race last


Running for Fun

Marilyn Pribus and her husband live in Albemarle County near Charlottesville. She once finished in the top 1,400 of a 10K run in DC.

Nelson County 11128 Rockfish River Road A trip along the Rockfish River brings you to a spot just south of the historic “Rockfish Depot,” which is the setting for this charming 1820’s farmhouse. Not only is this area of Nelson County rich with history, it is also the home of the town that inspired the 1970’s show, The Waltons. On its elevated perch, this federal-style home with double front porches sits, enjoying views of the Rockfish River and the surrounding mountains. No expense was spared in improvements and renovations over several years, using local resources when available. The 3 BR, 3 BA house presents soapstone throughout from the local quarry, original heart pine floors, stained glass from a local artisan, custom hickory cabinets in the kitchen and a Hearthstone woodstove.

Most local sports stores offer running products. “If you’re new to running, it’s good to go to a place where people really know what you need—especially for shoes,” Conte says, adding, “Crozet Running is a great resource with very knowledgeable folks like Michelle and John Anderson.” If you’re already experienced, she says, you can find what you need online or in most sports stores. The Women’s Four Miler has a training program in place that’s great for meeting people from walkers to running newbies to some who have run in every Four Miler race from the start. This year’s race will be Saturday, August 31. For more opportunities, browse the internet for local running clubs, because joining one of these organizations is a great way to start. Several groups have websites with information about group outings, upcoming races, and area running trails detailing length, elevation, technicality, maps and photos. In the long run, whether you are an established resident or new to the region, a marathoner or someone who walks around the block, you can find races as well as just-for-fun trails and companions in our area. n

“There are some great running clubs in the area,” says marathon organizer Conte. “The largest is the Charlottesville Track Club. Others are the Charlottesville Area Trail Runners and Crozet Running.” Generally, members train together and often meet for weekend group runs in various locations and terrains. “There are lots of group runs [that] a runner is welcome to join as well as training programs,” agrees Dahl. “Facebook groups connect the ‘big ones’ as well as others like Moms on the Run.”

summer (not a typo!), she continues to participate in the Four Miler, now with her 8-year-old daughter. Dahl’s enthusiasm has led her husband to train for a 50K and their 12-year-old son runs cross-country for Fluvanna Middle School. Other local race beneficiaries include Autism, Alzheimer’s and many more. Since 1983, for example, local Camp Holiday Trails 5K events have raised nearly $100,000. “The camp has specialized staff and facilities,” explains former pool director and volunteer Deb Shapiro. “It provides kids and teens with medical challenges—who cannot attend most other camps—an opportunity to grow more confident and independent. Plus have lots of fun.”

(before I was in the industry) when my parents first considered doing a reverse mortgage themselves. My Mom asked me to help her do some research and that’s what started me on my path of wanting to eventually be the expert on the subject. It’s amazing to me today that I still hear the same false rumors from people sometimes that I heard two decades ago. The mortgage company does not take title to your home and yes the heirs still inherit the home upon the borrower’s passing. Those are the two most misunderstood topics. And yes the money you receive is not income so it is not taxed as some people think. Also, Medicare and Social Security are not effected by the proceeds that you receive from a reverse mortgage. And yes it’s true that you are not required to ever make a payment for as long as you live in the home.

MARCH 6 -MARCH 12, 2019 ISSUE 2810

I first became a believer in reverse mortgages almost 20 years ago...

23

I am very patient when I speak to clients and take my time explaining everything face to face with absolutely no pressure to move forward because I remember how much my parents appreciated it when the person that they worked with showed them the same respect. I have never experienced the Sunday night blues of knowing that you are going back to work the next day as some people talk about. My job is a career that I never plan on retiring from because I genuinely enjoy working with my clients and seeing how their lives are benefitting from eliminating debt and by opening up a line of credit that can be used to help them for the rest of their lives. Every client’s story is a little bit different but they are all hoping to achieve a better life and I enjoy being a small part in that story.
