Though a smaller entity within the national organization, the Virginia Beach and Norfolk, VA region has always been an important part of the foundation's history. Founding member and past President, Brendan Curley, first helped a young child he knew through his time here in professional hockey and MDA. Justin needed a wheelchair and Brendan used his network of sports, events, and media to make the request a reality! The kind gesture sparked it all! Today, Betterment participates in two major events in the Virginia Beach area that in turn help support the national program; The Virginia Children's Festival and the Town Point Virginia Wine Festival. For information on becoming a part of the Virginia Beach area chapter, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call the national office at 410-394-9868.
