MarathonThanks to all who helped out with the event

Saturday evening about 65 parishioners and runners enjoyed a pasta dinner at Trinity Church, then on Sunday morning nearly 150 pancake breakfasts were tossed across Trintiy's garden. Overall we cleared about $1,000 toward Trinity's fundraising goal. Special thanks to Debbie Wiedwald, Chef Kent Phillips and all who helped with dinner, breakfast, and at the Expo Center.
Sunday morning we offered prayers, warmth and rest rooms to hundreds of runners and supporters - reportedly ours were the only non-portable rest rooms available downtown that morning!
