Runners race for new roof
Saturday May 11th was not just an ordinary day, for those who registered for the event hosted by Joshua’s House, it was The Amazing Race! Runners, walkers, friends and family arrived from throughout the state of Michigan to test their athletic ability once again, this time on the magnificent trails at Mid Michigan Community College.
“This fundraiser is key to assisting us in the completion of our much needed new roof for the Maternity Home,” remarked Rene’e Jeffords, the Executive Director of Joshua’s House. “We had a great turn out today and everyone has commented on how they are looking forward to next year’s race, even to the point of offering to help plan and assist us in growing and in the development of this event. We couldn’t be more pleased!”
