Ten teams took part in the first Scarborough Steeplechase on Sept. 21. The Amazing Race-type event brought 28 Anglicans together in Scarborough Deanery to meet each other, learn about each other’s churches and raise money for the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF). The race began at Holy Trinity, Guildwood and ended at Grace Church, Scarborough. Along the way, teams visited eight churches and five non-profits. The race ended with a party and prizes. The team from St. Timothy, Agincourt won first prize, followed by St. Jude, Wexford and Grace Church. The other churches taking part were Nativity, Malvern, St. Peter, Scarborough, St. Margaret in the Pines, Holy Trinity, Guildwood and Christ Church, Scarborough. More than $500 was raised for PWRDF. Organizers planned to make a video of the event.
A summer of joy and challenge
