“WAY TO GO TEAM!”
Threshold Housing “Running Home for Youth” Team participated in our first Charity Pledge Program in the GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon held on October 10, 2010. Threshold Housing Society participates in partnership with the GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon to raise awareness and raise the dollars need through the collection of pledges. The energy at the start and finish lines was absolutely amazing. Words and songs from the sideline gave participants the courage to continue on and reach their goal.
What a day it was for the “Running Home for Youth” team on Thanksgiving Weekend the team. Threshold Housing team and supporters raised over $2,200.00. Our runner, Dorrian Porter, from California, ran the ½ marathon in support and honour of Threshold Housing Society and raised pledges totalling over $1,300.00. Thank you, Dorrian.
