Save the Date!
Do you have your walking or running shoes ready? The Columbiette and Knight of Columbus Organizations of Saint Sylvester Catholic Church, Gulf Breeze FL are having their annual Flag Day 5K Run Walk at the church on Saturday June 10, 2017 at 7:30am. The charities this year will be Refuge for Women Emerald Coast and Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs.
Refuge for Women is a non-profit, faith based organization that provides long-term care for women who have escaped human trafficking or sexual exploitation. The program is designed, and staff trained, to help residents reach their goals in life, and to facilitate healing. This organization seeks to build a safe house here in the Panhandle.
Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs was created for the charitable purpose of rescuing, raising, training and then donating medical service dogs to mentally and/or physically impaired individuals to provide assistance, independence and improve the quality of life of both the recipient and the dog. This organization desires to help a local veteran.
Please ask your family, friends and neighbors to save the date to walk or run for charity. Registration is at www.active.com or www.stsylv.org. Please call Ellen Stanley, Race Coordinator at 850- 261-2971 or Mary Ann Kurtz, Administrative Secretary, at the church office at 850-939-3020 if you have any questions.
