On the run...

It is sometime since we have mentioned any running event…so here we have the Belfast Marathon…We are glad to say it is a team effort. Both Ken and Judith will do a leg of the marathon as part of a relay team.
We have two teams of five- male and female- made up of CMSI staff and will be running to raise funds for the work and ministry of CMSI.

If you would like to sponsor the run you can make a donation online via the cmsireland website.

Many thanks!!
