Dulles Greenway Drive for Loudoun Charities May 20th, and New Loudoun Hospital!
Great news this week for long-suffering Dulles South residents, concerning final approvals after 8 years of wrangling for the new HCA Loudoun Dulles South StoneSpring Medical Center 164-bed hospital on Rt. 50 in Loudoun County – set to open late 2015. The hospital should provide a much-need local economic recovery boost to this Gateway to Loudoun region, as well as much-need alternatives to those of us living in places like South Riding, with nothing but traffic-bogged alternatives for critical medical care beyond that which the local Dulles Urgent Care Centers can provide.
Set your calendars on May 20th (Thursday) for the Dulles Greenway Drive for Charity – your opportunity to cruise up to 65 mph through the scenic Loudoun spring vistas and support great local charities at the same time. The Dulles Greenway is donating all tolls raised on this day to charitable organizations supporting Loudoun, including the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter, and the Dulles Greenway Citizenship Award & Scholarship. The very next day you can ditch the car, yet continue to support the environment – it’s National Bike to Work Day, Friday, May 21st (but not on the Greenway!)
