A Note from Bishop Wallace-Padgett:

One of the opportunities to fund some of our missions’ ministries is through the 5K run at Annual Conference. Most of the District Superintendents and I participated in the run this past year.

Each District Superintendent has agreed to do so again if 10 people from a district sign up or if $1000 is raised from their district. However, we have added a way for a District Superintendent to opt out if he/she so desires. If the District Superintendent raises more money than their District, he/she gets to ride one of Birmingham Southern College's golf carts.

I can imagine now some of the District Superintendents riding on golf carts bantering with their less fortunate colleagues who are running. I invite you to join me in making the 5K run a priority. I am still deciding if I will bring my running shoes to Annual Conference or ride a golf cart. Either way it will be great fun for a wonderful cause. I hope to see you there.
