I am pleased to announce that the Episcopal Church in Vermont will make 15 rooms in the Bishop Booth Conference Center at Rock Point available for runners and their families who are coming to Burlington for the Key Bank Vermont City Marathon on May 26th. These are runners who were not able to finish the Boston Marathon because of the bombings and who have been invited by the Vermont City Marathon organizers to run in Burlington at no cost. There will be no cost to those who stay at the BBCC.
Marathon Organizers from RunVermont have set up a message board for the event and several people are posting messages offering rooms to these runners. Here is a link to the message I posted today: RunVermont Message Board
We welcome these and all those coming from Boston to Burlington and pray for a safe and fun day. The Episcopal Cathedral Church of Saint Paul will hold an ecumenical worship service at the Cathedral beginning at 7:10 AM (note the change from the original 7:15) to which all are welcome.
