June walkathon 2014

Our June Walkathon in the Rain - Best Ever!

Our 2014 Walkathon was our most successful Walkathon ever, despite the rains. It was begun as a memorial by Mark Jenkins' family, for he had died in an accident as a teenager.

Normally, we meet at the Kinsmen Park, car-pool to Mark's memorial tree up on the north end of Spadina Crescent, and then walk back to the Park where we have our barbecue picnic. Because of the heavy rains again this year, we met in Harold and Katie Barth's garage nearby, and did our Walkathon from there.

Mark's brother, Mike lit the memorial candle, while his mother, Barb Jenkins, read the memorial history and the purpose for this Walk to remember Mark, and to raise funds for Western Tract Mission's Impact Canada campaign.

After the traditional group photo shots (see top of page), the walkers bravely started out - rain or no rain! We were thrilled to have some participants who had never taken part before.

The Jenkins handed out capes from their car trunk, but some hardy souls declined all offers of umbrellas or capes.

Meanwhile, Harold Barth, our host, took care of grilling the donated sausage on their deck, and Ruth Friesen counted the sponsor monies that had been turned in to see who would get the prizes for the best fund-raising. She also spread the picnic food on the table inside the garage door, and cut up the jumbo watermelon.
