BENEFITING: ASSURE THE FUTURE
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
J. Iverson Riddle Developmental Center, along with Assure the Future, are currently planning the 1st Annual JIRDC Color Run to take place on Saturday, September 17th, 2016. All proceeds from the event will be used to help with the construction of an outdoor labyrinth for our chapel to be utilized by both residents and staff.
Labyrinths are walking paths that create a sacred space to meet our human need to connect with God. They can be walked alone or in pairs and only require one’s presence on the path. They are uniquely suited for individuals whose spiritual lives are supported by practices that are non-verbal and based on movement and the present moment experience. They are powerful in grief work, prayer, calming and healing.
The labyrinth we create will be accessible by foot and wheelchair so that all residents at JIRDC can take part in its beauty and serenity. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to fund this project. Please consider supporting this event by making a financial contribution. An award will be given on race day to the largest fundraiser!
