Description: Moneytalk Academies are a 6-week series of financial literacy sessions centered around a specific focus or topic. Money fights and money problems are a large part of the reason for divorce in many cases. The “Couples Academy” focuses on teaching the couple how to use the financial tools as communication tools, how to use money management to prevent fights, as well as get and stay on the same page, and grow as a couple. We only spend a small amount of time learning how to create the tools (such as a budget), the focus is on the next step: learning how to use the tools. The 6 week program series includes: aligning your vision and goals, credit reports and combining debts, budgeting as a communication tool, creating a budget you can both stick to, managing your bank accounts, and recap, wrap-up, and graduation. This series begins Tues, May 11th and runs through June 15th. Registration is for the entire series. Submitted by: Teresa McGarry Moneytalk Financial Foundations

Get the whole family involved, from tiny tots to four-legged furballs. Hop on that treadmill that’s collecting dust. Or dress up in fun costumes. Make the experience what you want it to be – just keep up your physical distancing! You have from May 25-May 31 (11:59 p.m. CT) to complete 3.1 miles. Choose your favorite route to walk or jog, whether it's indoors or out. Instead of awarding medals to the fastest participants, we're celebrating a whole host of achievements! Check our Facebook page for a list of awards categories. Participants also receive a race T-shirt. Register at https://www.active.com/running/distance-running-races/virtual-5k-home-ru.... Individuals register for $25, while teams of 4 or more pay $20 per person. To sign up for a team discount code, contact Kristin at kristin@lawrencefamilypromise.org.
