Bea Hartigan

Bea is one of the most dedicated members of the Townwide Fund of Huntington, and it is because of her commitment that the Thanksgiving Day Charity Run has become a signature event and key fundraising source for the Townwide Fund. In 2019, the spring run was renamed “Hartigan’s Irish Charity Run” in recognition of her decades of service to the Townwide Fund and to the Community. Bea became a member of the board of directors of the Townwide Fund in 1980 or 1970 – what year was that? Her no-nonsense, straight-forward dedication to the Fund and the community is unmatched. She refuses to give us a regular bio, but we know that she has taught generations of Huntington residents how to swim at the YMCA of Huntington, runs several open swim fundraising events and will be working with members of the board on creating a history of the Townwide Fund that incorporates the archives and the many anecdotes that make up the story of the Fund.
