A Year In Review
Each year, the entire SWG team volunteers to cook a meal for the Upper Valley Haven, a non-profit organization providing emergency shelter, food, clothing, and educational programming to those in need. It is great fun to watch our team work together in an environment outside of the office. It is also a great honor to be a part of such a well respected organization that does so much for so many families in the area.
For the past four years, Kelsey Herrmann-Stanzel has participated in the Annual Prouty. Her team, Mama Shaps, run in the 5k to support of Cancer Research. In 2016, the Prouty has raised almost $3.3 million with $5,000 coming from Mama Shaps. Well done Kelsey!
In 2016, Kristin Wright participated in the first CHaD HERO 5k run to raise funds for the prevention of child abuse.

All funds raised to participate in this event are used to provide the best care possible for the patients and families, varying from providing equipment to supporting non-reimbursable programs and services. Everyone at the event is encouraged to wear bright colored costumes and super hero outfits! Kristin's has plans to run again in 2017 with her 6 year old son, Austin. Go Kristin and Austin!

Annual Summit Wealth Group Donation
For the fifth, and final year, we donated another $10,000 to the Good Neighbor Health Clinics. The Good Neighbor Health Clinics, Inc. is a non-profit, free health care facility established in 1992 for the purpose of offering free primary medical and dental care to the people of the Upper Connecticut River Valley who are in need and lack the resources to obtain adequate care. It was a great honor to gift to such an organization.
