The Shekinah Virtual Move-A-Thon has been a great success!
Thanks to those of you who have participated - either by collecting pledges or donating - over $9000 has come in! In addition, donations are continuing to arrive, so we are hopeful of hitting the $10,000 mark soon.

Bike, paddle, hike, dance, garden, dance, skip, needlepoint, watch Netflix.* Decide on an activity, get pledges, do the activity at your own pace and socially distanced place, collect the pledges, and send money to support the mission of Shekinah Retreat Centre.
If you'd like, we encourage you to send us a video of you doing your event! Not necessary, but we'd love to see what the Shekinah community was up to.
Send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll send you an upload link for your video. Your fame will spread to tens of people!
Simple, easy, and accessible for all.

*Just kidding. We know you're not going to dance.
Even though everyone, regardless of ability, is welcome to participate in the Move-A-Thon, it's only natural that we'd get some high end, top athletes involved. Check out how this pro is gearing up for the Move-A-Thon:

Hamilton Fast, the professional in the previous video, has issued a special challenge: for every $150.00 pledged by the early bird date of September 12th, he will ride one kilometer on his tiny bike.
As of September 1, $1700 has already come in for Hamilton! This means we can expect him to travel at least 11 kilometers in relative - or actual - discomfort.
Please let the office know by the 12th the amount of your pledge for Hamilton. He is willing to ride up to 75 kilometres (the distance from Saskatoon to Shekinah), putting his own comfort aside to raise money for Shekinah!
Donations can be easily made by going to this link on our website: https://shekinah.ca/donations
