The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners presented a Proclamation at their regular meeting on June 26, 2017 proclaiming July 10-15 as Key Training Center’s Run for the Money Week in Citrus County.

Key Training Center currently serves the needs of more than three hundred developmentally disabled individuals in Citrus County. Key provides the highest quality of care and services to this special population including comfortable residential homes, education and training, jobs and job support both at the Key and for those employed out in the community, as well as recreation, cultural and spiritual support in an environment of kindness, love, dignity and respect.

Over the last year, the Key Training Center suffered multiple significant losses and in particular the passing of long time visionary executive director, Chester “Chet” V. Cole who passionately set the bar in this field of service. In furtherance of maintaining the quality of these services and seeking to enhance the legacy of the Key Training Center into the future, once a year a weeklong event is held to raise awareness with public and community support. The week is kicked off in July each year and begins with a 180-mile run from the capitol steps in Tallahassee to the Key Training Center campus in Lecanto just off SR 44 and is known as the “Run for the Money”.

The Board of County Commissioners proclaims July 10-15, 2017 as “Key Training Center’s Run for the Money Week” in recognition of the Center’s longstanding commitment to serve the Developmentally Disabled.
