Runaway Stroller donated to the Michael P. Baker Community Impact Fund its $150 honorarium for playing at the Battle of the 'Burgs, a fundraiser for the Michael P. Baker Community Impact Fund that takes place annually in June at Ard's Farm, in Lewisburg.

Runaway Stroller, comprised of vocalist, songwriter and rhythm guitar player Johanna Kodlick and lead guitarist, singer and songwriter Anthony Latt, performs intelligent interpretations of songs from the '60s to today. 

The Michael P. Baker Community Impact Fund was started in 2014 after Lewisburg chiropractor Michael Baker passed away from inoperable brain cancer. The goal of the fund is to help people in the communities Baker served cope with catastrophic events. ​ 

How does the fund help our communities? Michael P. Baker touched many lives, but he would tell people that they touched him more, and that he is profoundly grateful to all who crossed his path during his lifetime. He will be missed, but not forgotten in the memories of the countless people who knew and loved him. And, through this fund, administered by the First Community Foundation of PA, Mike's generous spirit will live on.  

Each year, $1000 is distributed by the Michael P. Baker Community Impact Fund, through the Salvation Army, American Red Cross and Favors Forward Foundation, to families coping with catastrophic illness or circumstance.

How can you help? The fundraising team, comprised of community members and Mike's family and friends, is committed to raising the $25,000 needed to make the fund self-sustaining, in perpetuity. The team is halfway to its goal.

Every donation helps. You can contribute at http://www.michaelpbakerfund.org/donate-now.html.

And The Incentives Page outlines suggested giving levels and corresponding ​Susquehanna Life magazine advertising and subscription perks for you, your business or your organization. 

Will you help us meet the $25,000 goal?
