(HARRISBURG PATRIOT NEWS) — Leaders of the stricken Second Mile foundation have filed court documents in Centre County today seeking permission to transfer all of its active programs and $2 million in cash to a Texas-based charity that has pledged to keep them going.

The move, Second Mile interim CEO Dave Woodle acknowledged in an interview with The Patriot-News, is a direct result of the taint the charity suffered when its founder and longtime public face, former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky, was charged with serial child molestation last year.
