Some folks from my church here in Dearborn (Dearborn Assembly) are walking in the 5K Run/Walk portion of the Detroit Marathon on Sunday, October 17. Since I've just recently arrived and found out about this, I'm jumping in last minute.
Our church is part of the Marathon Mission Team, which is a non-profit community and faith-based umbrella whose participants raise financial support for a Marathon Mission charity of their choice. Ours happens to be Dearborn Assembly (obviously), a church plant in downtown Dearborn that is currently raising money for its building renovation of Harry Miller Flowers into its own church building. It's both an exciting time for the church to have a place of its own but a stressful time in that it needs to take occupancy of the new location by December 31.
Would you consider supporting our endeavor? One-hundred percent of your gift will go to the church and is tax-deductible. Checks can be made payable to Dearborn Assembly. You can send them to my attention and I will deliver them to the church. I wish we had an online fundraising page but alas, the way fundraising is set up through the marathon website did not allow for specific donations to the church.
Let me know if you would like to contribute and I will send you a mailing address. Thank you!
