Today, your trip on the Dulles Greenway will benefit some great causes.
All the tolls from the 14-mile Greenway, which connects Dulles International to Leesburg, will be donated to local charities as part of the Greenway Drive for Charity.
The charities include:
- March of Dimes
- Every Citizen Has Opportunity (ECHO)
- Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter (LAWS)
- Fresh Air/Full Care
- Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy
In addition to these groups, the tolls will also go to the Dulles Greenway Scholarship Program, in which one senior at each of the Loudoun County public high schools wins a $1,500 prize.
This is the sixth annual Drive for Charity.
Over the past five years, this event has raised more than a million dollars for various groups.
There will also be several personalities from local radio stations giving away prizes.
