Here is our last post from Richard Doyle about the run. Stay tuned for updates!
Father Knows Best? ...Running for Huron Church Camp
In support of the Huron Church Camp bursary program, Richard Doyle of St. Mike’s London will be running the 2017 Ottawa marathon on May 27, 2017. In what might be a generational torch-passing, or a bucket-list item, but more likely just a case of catching someone at a weak moment, Laura Doyle (an HCC alumnus!) will be running her first marathon along side Richard.
In 2016, Huron Church Camp welcomed over 400 children for a fun and life-changing stay at the camp…a good number of those kids needed financial help from the camp’s bursary fund to get there.
Richard and Laura are asking for pledges for this run to help support Huron Church Camp’s bursary fund…all proceeds will go directly towards sending kids to HCC who might not otherwise have the means to get there. And if you want to double your pledges to acknowledge there are two of us doing this, we are good with that!
With your generous and continued support, our running efforts over the past twelve years have raised a little over $238,000 and helped give almost 600 kids the Huron Church Camp experience. Thank you!
