The Malton Fun Run, organized by Wayne Kennedy, Urma Tomby, and their colleagues in the Personal Ministries Department, has been an annual event since 2014. The driving force behind this event is a love for ADRA’s mission of serving humanity so all may live as God intended. The Malton church members decided that it was time for them to make an impact in the world.
After weeks of asking for support, participants came together on August 25, 2019 to run, walk, or cycle down the Humber Trail. They spoke with others in the community about the reason for their presence. Not keeping the message of ADRA to themselves, they bridged the gap between the church and the community and created friendships.
Brother Kennedy and Sister Tomby don’t want the Fun Run to remain just at Malton. They dream of the day when the event will spread and all Adventist churches, along with community agencies, come together to participate in an annual event to help relieve suffering. This dream may soon come true as the church and ADRA become more familiar in the community.
