Kordusky to chair annual fundraiser
Meaghan Kordusky, a fiscal technician for the Howard County Office on Aging, will chair the county's Relay for Life, the annual overnight fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, to be held June 6 and 7 at Hammond High School in Columbia.
Kordusky served as co-chair of the county's 2007 Relay for Life, and as a team captain in 2006. Although she is to chair this year's event alone, two previous Relay for Life co-chairs, Lori Evans and Debra Wilkenloh, will assist her.
Kordusky's father, who has bladder cancer, participated in the event's Survivor's Lap in 2006 and 2007, and her maternal grandmother died of uterine cancer about 25 years ago.
Last year, 72 teams participated in the Howard County Relay for Life. The event raised $270,000.
Neighbor Ride names coordinator
Colleen Konstanzer, who served as the first executive director of Neighbor Ride from 2004 to 2006, has returned to the organization as its new community outreach coordinator.
She will work collaboratively with the executive director, volunteer coordinator and board committees in marketing, fund development and volunteer recruitment.
The volunteer-based nonprofit works to minimize isolation and improve the quality of life of Howard County residents, ages 60 and older, by providing reliable supplemental transportation for their health care appointments, and religious, cultural and social, exercise and educational activities.
