The 50km Trek – Bishop runs for Catholic TRC Healing Response
Bishop Mark Hagemoen of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon is embarking on a 50-km run to raise funds and awareness about the Catholic TRC Healing Response.
Those sponsoring the bishop’s 50km Trek are able to direct their donations to their particular diocese or eparchial efforts in support of the Catholic TRC Healing Response, notes Hagemoen. Funds raised will go to support residential school survivors and their communities, in light of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action, and in consultation with Indigenous leaders, elders and groups.
Dubbed “The 50km Trek,” the bishop’s run on Sept. 18 is part of the Beaver Flat 50 marathon held at Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park on a rough course that features “2300 meters/7500 feet of vertical gain.”
