« Back to all News & Announcements

We give praise and thanks to God for giving us a beautiful sunny day for the Timothy Tri Event held at Foster Beach in Chicago on Saturday, August 24. Despite the powerful waves that deterred us from swimming, our participants still persevered and crossed the finish line! We are so proud of everyone, especially our students, who went out of their comfort zone to “Tri” and who overcame their fears by finishing strong. This year we had over 50 participants from our school. We were thrilled to once again have our tent next to the Elim Christian Services tent. We have a wonderful partnership and friendship with Elim and it is a mutual blessing to participate side-by- side with Elim, their clients and staff every year.

It is with sincere gratitude that we announce that we have received over $37,000 from the Tri event that will go towards the Project IMPACT Phase II Fund. This is a new record high for our Tri Event. These results would not be possible without a very generous Anonymous Matching Gift. In addition, we give special thanks to our two corporate donors Darwill Printing and Ozinga and for their leadership. Thanks to all of our teams and the donors who supported our Tri participants. All of these great results are due to a true team effort by all involved. Last but not least we want to thank our Tri Event Leadership team of Amy Alex, Karen Rowaiye, Kc Hagstrom, Leslie Wolterstorff, and Wendy Marshall. We appreciate all of you who were involved in the 2019 Timothy Tri event. You are amazing and we are so thankful for these truly remarkable results for God’s glory and for the advancement of our school.

To God be the Glory!
