Mercy Ministries of Canada feels like a big, wonderful family for us, and so it’s always a joy to gather together, to catch up on what God is doing in the lives of the Mercy graduates and residents, tell stories, hug each other in real life, and, of course, to run or walk for Mercy!
This year’s Run for Mercy was amazing! Congratulations to all of you!
We’ll have a few stories about the day to share over the next few weeks but we know you’re most interested to hear the numbers right now. We do NOT have final times for all runners yet, only our winners. As soon as we have the final times and all of the photos, we’ll post the link here and on our Facebook page so check back.
Total raised by the end of the day on Saturday: $48,700
Top fundraising team: Congratulations to the Jericho Joggers $6,535
Top Individual Fundraiser Patricia Pearce $5000 – we’ll even have a post from Patricia this week!
