Greetings to all of you, my wonderful long time or new supporters of the Refugee Sponsorship program at Islington United Church! This is the 41st year of refugee sponsorship at Islington and the 13th year of our participation in the Scotiabank run/walk fundraiser. As captain of our enthusiastic Running and Walking for Refugees team I am excited to be lacing up the ol' running shoes again! Due to the pandemic, we are doing a socially distant virtual event again this year (in a park) and hope to raise $10,000. Thank you so much for your support which will give new beginnings to the lives of our refugee newcomers.
PS The photo shows my right hand accepting a "socially distant" donation from a generous supporter at the 2020 virtual Scotiabank "in the park" event.
