Jonathan Glick's Fundraiser:

Running the Harrisburg Marathon for the Leathermans

BENEFITING: CALVARY MONUMENT BIBLE CHURCH

EVENT DATE: Nov 11, 2012

Jonathan Glick

THE STORY:

My sister Ruth was an amazing woman and a great mother. She died suddenly in her sleep on October 20th leaving behind 3 young children. Esther (age 5), Isaac (age 3) and Ruby (9 months). She will be dearly missed by all of us but most of all by those she cared for 24/7... her family.

Mark, her husband, has been the sole bread winner for the past 5 years but now, he will need to be the caregiver as well. The Leathermans have been one of the most generous families I have known over the past 9 years. They have given selflessly to those in need. Both financially and with their time. In 2004, Mark & Ruth quit their jobs and gave a year of their time and abilities to the Mennonite Disaster Service helping those who have been struck by misfortune.

We now have the opportunity to give back to them in their time of need. Let us all band together in support of Mark & Ruth's children and in memory of Ruth. 

I will be running the Harrisburg Marathon in her memory on November 11 and the Calvary Monument Bible Church has graciously set up a fund to assist in caring.

The immediate goal is to cover funeral expenses, childcare and housing over the next 3 months considering that Mark will have very little opportunity to work. Thank you.

I have sweet memories of meeting Ruth when I was 16. Such fun her and Jonny and Scott and I had at Children's Institutes. Our responsible big brothers left us free to enjoy some really happy times. :) I am so proud of her, for living her life well... even without the warning of death ahead. I guess we all have that warning. I've received it as well, in the form of aggressive invasive cancer. Her family is walking through paths I have wished to never think of, and we gratefully haven't had to walk yet. I wish I could do more! Care for her babies, make them a meal... I'm grateful for the chance to do something, and have had the chance to share her story already with young people we work with here in Alaska. Challenging them to live their life well. God bless and keep you. Our prayers and tears are with you, trusting the Spirit of God to apply them where needed. 4 years ago
