10K Grant Recipient Great Charity Challenge 2020

A Big Thank You to all the sponsors and supporters of the Great Charity Challenge, and Anne Caroline and her team for the fantastic job of making this such a wonderful event! More information about all winners and photos of the event can be found at the Great Charity Challenge website and Facebook page.

The Foundation is named after Taras, the son of Poseidon, who, when Taras was shipwrecked, rescued him by sending a dolphin, which Taras rode to traverse the sea to the south of Italy. Brought ashore, Taras founded the city of Tarentum, today known as Taranto.
