“Everyone is welcome at the Junior League of the Palm Beaches Miles for a Mission,” said Marcelle Griffith Burke, president of Junior League of the Palm Beaches. “Whether walking or running, this is an opportunity to come together and support the mission of the league raising critical funds so that we may continue our important work in the community.”
The Junior League of the Palm Beaches is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Proceeds from Miles for a Mission will fund various programs within the community, like the Period Supply Bank, which provides free menstrual products to individuals in need; Little Free Libraries near low-income families; and a Done in a Day program, which provides volunteer support for more than 20 local nonprofits.
