I wish to extend a huge thank you to everyone who volunteered for the walk-a-thon, making it a huge success last Friday. The walk went well, financial pledges exceeded $28,000, and the large number of donations to Ronald McDonald House were received with amazement. I am extremely proud of the Grace community!
