Topping their 2014 donation to Project MOST, the Hamptons Marathon on Friday presented a $31,000 check to the after-school program at Springs School. East Hampton Town and Springs School officials, as well as Project MOST students, gathered to celebrate the donation.
For eight years, the Hamptons Marathon has donated $75,000 each year to local East End organizations, including Southampton Hospital, the Springs School, the Springs School PTA’s extracurricular swimming program, the East Hampton Day Care Learning Center and East Hampton Youth Football. The money is raised through the marathon’s annual September race fees.
The funds for Project MOST will go toward its programming, which includes providing scholarships to children whose families cannot afford the program.
