Jonathan Clarke, the new National Director of Threshold Ministries, is participating in the ScotiaBank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 2oth, 2019. He's raising funds for Street Hope, with Threshold Ministries. This run has a 42K, 21K or 5K option.
Would you consider supporting our new National Director as he takes on this challenge? To support Jonathan personally, follow this link to his fundraising page. Would you like to run/walk with him? You can find more information on the STWM website, and we'll share more details as we get them.
Personal Letter from Jonathan:
Dear friends and family, I have entered the Scotiabank Marathon for 2019 ~ October 20th.
I will be running this race to raise funds for Street Hope. Street Hope is an outreach of Threshold Ministries. Street Hope has had street ministries in Saint John, NB, in Peterborough, ON, and in Victoria, BC.
This year we will be raising funds for the establishment of a men’s shelter by Street Hope Saint John. There are currently no facilities or safe houses for those trying to recover from addictions in Saint John. Street Hope Saint John is attempting to address this issue. With God's provision and your help we hope to change this.
Please consider sponsoring me for this event. Your support would be really appreciated by both myself and Street Hope Saint John.
You can sponsor me by clicking on the link noted above.
Since this is the 90th year of Threshold Ministries, we are sending out a “9-Oh” challenge. If ninety people or groups pledged $90.00, we would have $8,100 for this great cause. If you would like to donate towards this, please designate your donation to the “9-Oh” race challenge.
We would love to establish a ninety-person prayer group that prays specifically for this cause. We suggest 9:09 am or pm as a great time to do this! What a great team that would be! If you would like to join this prayer group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are able, you could also participate in the event with us. You can run a 5km, a 21.1km, or — like me — a 42.2km; some are suckers for punishment. By participating you would fundraise for Street Hope, and you could help with this valuable cause.
Use the codes below if you would like to participate. These will give you the discounted race fee. You will need to set up your own fundraising page to get your own sponsors. Note: you do not enter the code below under “promo code;” it is later under fundraising.
