I (Pastor Dennis) have challenged myself to participate in the Teen Challenge Freedom Run by running 10K to help raise funds to support this ministry.
For those who are not familiar with the ministry of Teen Challenge, it is a faith-based 12 month residential recovery program for men and women of all ages who are struggling with drug and/or alcohol addiction. Here in Alberta, just south of Calgary, is the Alberta Men's Centre. The closest women's centre is located in the province of Saskatchewan but there are other centres across Canada as well.
I plan to run 10K on Sunday, September 26. I've started training and am recognizing that this will be a significant challenge indeed. I want to challenge you to support me in this by sponsoring me. My goal is to raise at least $1000 for this ministry.
If you'd like to sponsor me you can do so in two ways. You can give by cash or cheque at Sunrise (Please make cheques payable to Teen Challenge). Alternatively, you can give directly by clicking on the link below (After you click the link, you will be taken to the Freedom Run website. On the bottom left, click "Find / Sponsor a Participant. Then you'll need to enter my first and last name and then my name will show up. Click on my name and you'll be taken to the page on which you can make your donation).
I want to thank you in advance for sponsoring me and helping support the ministry of Teen Challenge.
