As we adapt to a safe, flexible FUN and FUND raiser; here are some of the creative people that you can sponsor if you choose not walk or ride yourself.

Father Bill Stang OMI: Father Bill will be walking at and around Trinity Manor for Queen’s House this year.
Dave Henderson: Dave represents our staff and he already walks or bikes each day, so this is a natural extension of his active lifestyle.
