Look! Why we do what we do👍🏽 I love it. Many thanks Stephen Bilko for the very BIG part that you play in these young lives. Thank you for your commitment. Much ❤️

“We.Help.People”
The reason we are here💙
And our company’s entire mission💙
... and many times, ‘helping’, has nothing to do with exercise and everything to do with investing in our next generation💙
.
So proud and humbled to play but a small part of the mission and vision of the Erin Peterson Fund ‼️
.
Friday we combined our young men and our young women leadership groups, to cover respect, etiquette, manners, fine dining, and everything ‘fancy’☺️ ... one of our favorite days!!

I’ve read that there is a time and season for everything, and in my lifetime, I’ve witness this to be true. For the Erin Peterson Fund (EPF) that has been supporting, advocating and changing young lives for 12 years.

Now, is a time to brag.

Earlier this year Young Men’s Leadership Group (YMLG) at Westfield High School was awarded the Fairfax County Public School (FCPS) 2019 Team Excellence Award for Student Achievement. For 12 years EPF has supported this program in any and every way that was needed to ensure it would continue to exist. YMLG is particularly close to the heart of the EPF and has finally now been recognized for the change it has brought to the school and the community.

I’m proud that EPF is a sponsor, founding member and just a proud mother figure to an exceptional group of young men. So, yes, I’m bragging and very proud to take a bow for EPF and one of their most successfully programs.

Field trip day to the National Museum of African American History and Culture with Westfield HS YMLG and GRACE. Beautiful day with these wonderful young people. Watching the young men hold the door and help the ladies on and off the bus just makes my heart happy. Quizzing the group on what they learned is a fun game we play on all of our trips. Just a great day.

Some may wonder why I’m still putting on a golf tournament each year. Why or what is driving someone pass grief, pass the place of complacency and rest. Rest needed in a time when given the challenges that have come up against my family, friends and community would be a welcomed haven. Well it’s simple; this is a calling that must be answered, and the question comes back; if not you then who? Who will start at a small level in our community to focus on the bigger picture, our youth’s future? Who will push pass all that could possibly hold you down to be a help and change agent for our youth?
It’s with your love, support and vision pass just giving scholarships but with an eye on filling in wherever help is needed to help and uplift our youth. They are our future. My hope and future was in Erin and now she is in heaven so now this calling is left to you and me.
Support the Erin Peterson Fund, register for the 12th Annual EPF Golf Tournament. If you don’t play golf, please forward this to your contact list and let them know how they can be the change agent that is so needed. Thank you

Erin Peterson

Erin Peterson was one of the victims of the Virginia Tech tragedy on April 16, 2007. Majoring in International Studies, she wanted to learn about other cultures, help the less fortunate around the world and be a force in bringing people together. She believed that a good education was the way to accomplish her goals.

The EPF Gospel Celebration was originally a way of bringing together a community in mourning for support and reflection. It evolved into a regional event where supporters gather to celebrate Erin’s life and forward her legacy through the Erin Peterson Fund. New this year is the Annual Erin Peterson Fund Scholarship Gala!
