The Friends of the Blue Ridge Parkway received a ten-thousand dollar donation from the Blue Ridge Marathon organizers Monday.
The non-profit organization is a group that works to protect and preserve the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Marathon Chair Pete Eshelman says its a group they are proud to give back to. "The work that they do to protect the view shed, the programs, the education is just phenomenal," Eshelman said.
This is the fourth year marathon organizers have made a donation to the Friends of the Blue Ridge Parkway
