Remember, while this event offers a great chance to get outdoors, get active, and connect with some new people, it’s also a fundraising event in support of the mission and programs of Shekinah. Reach out to your family and supporting community with a quick note (see sample below) - you might just win the FREE two-night stay in a Shekinah cabin for the top fundraiser. (pledges accepted until October 1)
