VA Mortgage Center is preparing to “howl” from the rooftops.

The nation’s leading VA home loan specialist will host the inaugural “Coyote Hill 5K race/walk” on Saturday, October 10, to benefit Coyote Hill Christian Children’s Home, a professional and loving home for abused and neglected foster-care children. The race’s slogan is “Let’s show them HOWL much we care.”

Based in Harrisburg, Coyote Hill provides a host of counseling and social work services for foster children. Founded in 1991, this crucial mid-Missouri nonprofit organization relies primarily on volunteers and generous donors who decide to reach out a helping hand.

The 5K race/walk will kick off at VAMC’s headquarters at 2101 Chapel Plaza Court. The route winds through the community and concludes back at the VAMC complex.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. on the day of the race with the race/walk starting at 9. The entry fee is $25 in advance and $30 on the day of the race. For participants 12 and under, the fee is $15 in advance and $20 on the day of the race.

All proceeds from the event will go to Coyote Hill Christian Children’s Home.

“It truly has been a pleasure to work with VA Mortgage throughout the whole planning process,” said Kari Salmon, development representative at Coyote Hill. “I know they are doing everything they can to raise the most support possible. This is also a great opportunity for us to show Columbia what we are doing for children just 20 miles north.”

VAMC’s seven-person Charity Committee spearheaded the effort. The idea for a benefit race/walk originated within the company’s multi-sports club. After surveying the region’s nonprofit needs, Coyote Hill was the group’s first choice.

“Coyote Hill is an incredible resource for some of our community’s neediest children,” said Ann Harvey, a VAMC loan processor and member of the company’s charity committee. “We’re honored to help these children get a second chance.”
