Running For Refugees

Sunday, October 20

Running for Refugees
A Message from the Refugee
Support Ministry Committee

For the 11th consecutive year, Islington entered a team in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon which took place on October 20.
Once again, our congregation and many others responded so generously to this annual fundraiser. Our Committee members and our 16 person IUC Running and Walking for Refugees Team (who ranged from 7 to 83 years of age), were inspired, humbled and immensely grateful for your outpouring of support through record donations totaling an even $20,000!!!!
With the recent joyous celebration of 40 years of refugee resettlement still resonating in our hearts...


A HUGE THANK YOU Islington United Church!
