This Sunday, November 3rd, St.Luke’s Parish will host its fourth annual Run With The Saints fundraiser. 


Participants have the opportunity to choose between a 3 mile run, 1 mile walk, or kids run around Pear Tree Point beach. There will also be snacks and activities available after the run. 


Runners can pre pay for the fundraiser online. There are also further sponsorships available for either family packs (including meals), or recognition in Santa Cruz del Norte.  


All funds from Run With the Saints will allow cuban children to attend the National Episcopal Youth Camp next summer. Funds will also go to repairs necessary in the Cuban community center Parish that is paired with St. Lukes, Santa Cruz del Norte.
