History of the Anemarie Wenck Resource Fund
Two Hartwick College graduates, Noah Keller and Brian Armbrecht, traveled by bicycle across the United States during the Summer of 1997 to promote awareness and raise money for individuals with disabilities served by The Family Resource Network, Inc. The project known as C.H.I.L.D. Ride (Cycling to Help Individuals Living with Disabilities) was coordinated by Kathleen Wenck. The money raised was used to establish the C.H.I.L.D. Ride Fund.
On January 18, 2006 the Board of Directors of The Family Resource Network, Inc. voted to revise the name of the Fund to the Anemarie Wenck Resource Fund in honor of founding mother Kathleen Wenck's daughter Anemarie.
