Ed Kowalski, owner of Lola’s Cafe and Crave Restaurant on Washington Street in Poughkeepsie explained that he does a fund raiser for Miles of Hope every October, Breast Cancer Awareness month: “I have many friends, colleagues and customers who are affected by this disease,” he explained. “It is the least I can do for a great organization that helps people right here in the Hudson Valley.”

“I love this restaurant and I love Miles of Hope, so getting them together was a no-brainer,” Rachel said.
Pari Forood, Executive Director of Miles of Hope expressed gratitude to both Ed and Rachel: “Ed has been a great supporter of ours for years, and Rachel is part of our Miles of Hope family — we are humbled by their support.”
“We know people who were helped by Miles of Hope and wanted to give back to the foundation that is right here in the Hudson Valley,” explained co-owner Linda Gregory. “Everyone in our shop was committed and excited to raise money for Miles of Hope and they all pitched in!”
Pari Forood, Executive Director of Miles of Hope, added: “So many businesses in our eight county area have taken it upon themselves to raise money for us. They have done it in very creative ways with promotions, athletic contests, and sales, and we are very grateful for all of them.”

The staff of the Vail Farm Elementary School took it upon themselves to celebrate October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month in a very special way– by helping their friends, neighbors and family who may be affected by breast cancer now or in the future.
“I have been raising money for Miles of Hope for years,” explained teacher Bonnie Glick, “but always in May for the Annual Spring Brunch. When October rolled around, I wanted to do something with my school, to show our support as an organization.”
Through the sale of merchandise and ribbons and promotions like Pink Out Day, Vail Farm Elementary School raised $1400 for Miles of Hope.
“This is just another example of a grass roots effort to selflessly address needs in the community,” said Miles of Hope Executive Director, Pari Forood. “Our Hudson Valley is filled with magnanimous people reaching out and doing whatever they can for local organizations like ours, enhancing our ability to help those who need us.”
