Peyton Tuthill 2nd Hearts of Hope-a-Thon
Sponsored by Inmates at Hardee Correctional Institution
The 2018 marathon was a huge success. Results will be available the end of the month. Peyton's Song "Fly Away" and 6 others were written and recorded. A CD will be made and given to families participating. A special gift was presented to Pat that was handmade in the wood shop- a guitar. In 2016 and 2017 inmates, their families, and friends donated to the Foundation making it possible for 5 scholarships to be awarded.
Inmates from age 23 to 74 participated. The proceeds directly benefit young survivors receiving the "Hearts of Hope Scholarships". These gifts also fulfill the purpose of Restorative Justice by accepting accountability, providing a way to repair harm to victims, and for offenders to develop empathy. The Foundation is committed to turning lives around. Y
