"Phantom 5k" Virtual Run Fundraiser Nets $8500 For Woodland Dunes Programs

Woodland Dunes Nature Center is encouraged by the success of its Dash At the Dunes event, which became a virtual run fundraiser, the “Phantom 5K,” due to the Covid-19 virus. 


Over 200 participants walked, ran or hiked their way to a 5K medal from the middle of April to the middle of May 2020 and raised $8,500 for Woodland Dunes programs.


“We’ve never done a virtual fundraiser before and were really one of the first locally to do this, so we were fast-tracking into unknown territory on so many levels,” stated Nancy Nabak, Phantom 5K race director, “but the participants were awesome, flexible, and sent selfies while on their own private route.”


Woodland Dunes, a longtime TRBA member, would like to thank the community sponsors who stayed with the event during this difficult time, even though it had to change its makeup mid-stream: Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic, Shoreline Credit Union, KI, Fox Communities Credit Union, Lakeside Foods, Thrivent, and Starfish Graphics.


Participant, Pam Robinson had this to say, ”Flexibility is the name of the game with this race! Gotta be willing to run through mud on the trails, on the road because we have a foot of snow (referencing our Dash two years ago right after the blizzard), or on our own to keep everyone safe!”


Everyone who registered and completed a 5K received a unique Phantom 5K race medal and will be mentioned by name in the fall Woodland Dunes newsletter.

Small Business Administration Economic Disaster Loans now accepting applications

The Small Business Administration's (SBA) disaster loans are the primary form of Federal assistance for the repair and rebuilding of non-farm, private sector disaster losses. The disaster loan program is the only form of SBA assistance not limited to small businesses.


The Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program (EIDL) can provide up to $2 million of financial assistance (actual loan amounts are based on amount of economic injury) to small businesses or private, non-profit organizations that suffer substantial economic injury as a result of the declared disaster, regardless of whether the applicant sustained physical damage.


An EIDL can help you meet necessary financial obligations that your business or private, non-profit organization could have met had the disaster not occurred. It provides relief from economic injury caused directly by the disaster and permits you to maintain a reasonable working capital position during the period affected by the disaster. EIDLs do not replace lost sales or revenue.

WEDC announces targeted grants to small businesses suffering losses due to coronavirus

“This is a program targeted at some of the ‘smallest of the small’ businesses that are vital to their communities. Many of these businesses, especially retailers, restaurants and small service providers, typically operate on the narrowest of margins,” said Hughes.


“Many don’t have the cash reserves needed to survive a substantial loss of revenue, which can happen with a prolonged emergency. SB20/20 will help put cash in the pockets of these businesses and their employees when they need it most.”
