A group of Runk & Pratt residents have just reached an incredible milestone! In just 73 weeks, the independent living residents on the 4th floor of Liberty Ridge have collected and recycled 10,000 pounds of disposable materials, including paper, plastic, cardboard, and aluminum cans! That's 5 TONS of waste recycled! Thanks to everyone who helped make this milestone possible, and a special thanks to residents Sterry and Larry for being champions of the cause. Let's aim to recycle even more next year! ... See MoreSee Less

Last week, Vickie Runk visited the students of the Runk & Pratt School of Nursing Instruction as they held clinicals at Lynchburg Health & Rehabilitation Center - Vickie's place of employment before she started Runk & Pratt. We love to see how local businesses and individuals of the community can come together to accomplish truly special things!Clinicals at Runk & Pratt School of Nursing Instruction began last week at Lynchburg Health & Rehabilitation Center.
