Old Bill's Fun Run for Charities

Walkers make their way under the American flag hanging over Broadway on Saturday during a past Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charities.

Those opening their wallets this weekend to contribute to the rebirth of Astoria Hot Springs Park may be surprised to find their dollars will not be matched through Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charities.

The Trust for Public Land, along with the Nature Conservancy and a handful of other nonprofits, did not qualify to participate in the six-week fundraising campaign after new eligibility requirements were recently instituted.
