Under generally sunny skies, The Threshold Housing Society participated in the Charity Pledge Program with the Goodlife Fitness Royal Victoria Marathon on October 9th. The marathon this year saw over 12,000 people run various lengths of the course.
In that mix were several runners who ran with pledges to help Threshold give homes to at-risk youth. Many thanks to Janice MacKinnon (Vancouver), Kerri-Lynn Wilson (Nanaimo), Angie Messereey (Red Deer, Alberta) Mike Woodcock (Victoria), and Kayla Feragen (Victoria) for running like the wind and helping to secure pledges.
Threshold had a booth located on Government Street. It was manned by Board members Richard Couch, Bob Porter, Dan Fraikin and Glen Tadsen. Special thanks to Kyra Henry for doing much of the liaison work with the organizers and supporting the “Running Home for Youth” team. Threshold wishes to acknowledge the generous donation made by Dorrian Porter of California.
