Alumni Update: 2010 Graduate Takes a Run at Fundraising for the Married Student Housing Program - 07/23/14

St. Tikhon's Alumnus Fr. Joseph McCartney (STOTS 2010) is running a half-marathon this October in Cleveland Ohio to help raise money and awareness for the seminary's Married Student Housing Program.

"We all want to make a difference, but we are usually stopped by the thought, 'What can I do? I'm just one person.' However, the truth is that God can use each of us and the talents and skills He has given us - no matter how seemingly insignificant, like running. I don't know how much of a difference I can make with this race , but I'm going to give it my best effort and see what God can do with it." (Fr. Joseph McCartney)

 If you'd like to sponsor Fr. Joseph and also help support the St. Tikhon's Married Student Housing Program you can visit the donation site at YouCaring.com.

Please consider giving to this very worthwhile project while at the same time providing for those who are willing to go the extra 13.1 miles to support our married student familes.
