The Twilight event is one of the most fun events that my company sponsors. It is a real community event.

Race director and HTEF board member Jon Meyer said, “In 2009, Haverford High School received a $30,000 grant to rebuild the school radio station. Over the last few years, each of the township’s five elementary schools has received $10,000 in grants. Those grants were used to implement innovative learning programs in the schools.”
Meyer, who is also vice president of sales for Nolan Painting, a major sponsor for the event, said, “This is the best turnout so far and we have been able to give over $40,000 to Haverford Township schools in the last five years.”
Both Meyer and Kevin Nolan, owner of Nolan Painting, volunteer their time to run the event each year.
Nolan, who was co-director of the race this year, said, “The Twilight event is one of the most fun events that my company sponsors. It is a real community event. Jon (Meyer) did a great job this year as director; it was a great success all around.”
