Alvin Dixon Memorial Run/Walk at General Council 42
THE UNITED CHURCH OF CANADA FOUNDATION / FONDATION DE L'EGLI
Participants at GC 42 will be invited to take part in the Alvin Dixon Memorial Run/Walk. This 5 km run or 2 km walk will be a fund raiser as well as a good opportunity to get out and get moving around in the midst of days of meetings. The funds raised will be added to the Alvin Dixon Memorial Bursary Fund. This fund, which will be used to support initiatives that focus on education for Aboriginal students, was established in memory of Alvin Dixon, who was a residential school survivor and United Church leader whose life has inspired many. Alvin was also a runner.
