An update from award recipient Giovanna Heron
December 22, 2016
I received the Corporal Chad O’Quinn award last year, and again this year. It has been a great assistance to alleviating some of the cost of tuition. This past semester at Tyndale has been great; outside of theology and theoretical counselling courses, I was able to take the skills lab course which teaches practical counselling skills for internship and future work in therapy. I will be taking internship in September 2017 and I look forward to being placed in a chaplaincy position or working in spiritual care. I have been doing some work as a student chaplain in the military, and I believe the skills I have learned at Tyndale will allow me to go forward with confidence into the role of military chaplaincy in the next few years.
I would like to thank the supporters of this award for your contributions – financially, in prayer, and through promotion of the award.
Today is #ThankYouThursday! Thank you, Alumni, for supporting Tyndale students on #GivingTuesday. Together, we raised $2,190 to support student financial aid for the 16/17 academic year.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Virlyn thanks Tyndale alumni!
We are so thankful for all of the stories, support and prayers that you have shared with us so far today! Already, Tyndale Alumni have generously given $1,990 to make a difference in the lives of our students.
If you haven’t had chance to give yet, there are still a few more hours left for you to help us reach our $5,000 goal for #GivingTuesday!
Thank you for supporting Tyndale students!
Thank you, Alumni!
Hi Alumni family!
Just a quick note from me, Emily, to give an update on our progress today. So far we have raised $870 towards our $5,000, #GivingTuesday goal.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
If you haven’t given yet, please continue to prayerfully consider making a gift towards student bursaries and scholarships. Your gift can make a difference in the lives of students like me!

Coffee time and run reflections.
The 2016 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront run is now done and I can sit back and enjoy a leisurely coffee. It was a great day. The rain held off for me to cross the finish line and join my colleagues in celebration. This year, over 26,000 runners participated and Nathan Philips Square was bustling with energy - even with rain coming down on us.
Regardless of how I do, it's always a rush when crossing the line and hearing your name called out. My goal to run a faster 5k year this year was just missed by a few minutes. So, the planning and preparation for 2017 starts now.
But wait... There's even more to cheer about! With the gifts received today and later this week, I will have surpassed my fundraising goal! Thank you for giving. The students who receive support to stay in school will be so appreciative.
Thank you all for your encouragement and support.
I did not run alone - I carried you with me in my heart.
Tough to run when you want to stop and enjoy these country roads!
Thanksgiving. A weekend to reflect and give thanks for all you have. For all who love and support you. For everything that surrounds you.
THANK YOU for supporting my run. THANK YOU for supporting struggling students. THANK YOU for supporting the future.
The Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront run is only 5 days away. I don't quite feel ready. Maybe it was the delicious Thanksgiving food that is still resting in my tummy. Maybe it was taking a few fall strolls to enjoy the colours instead of a hard run. In any case, in 5 days I will be crossing the finishing line - and I thank YOU because I can't do it without you.
With Thanksgiving appreciation,
"There are no shortcuts to anyplace worth going." - Beverly Sills
There are 18 days until the run. 18 days of training opportunities. 18 days of prioritizing a run over other activities. 18 days to encourage. 18 days to focus. 18 days to just make it happen.
There are no shortcuts.
On my run yesterday, my first in over a week since catching a cold, I pushed hard. Running through trails with the trees arching up around me, hearing the crush of gravel under my feet, each breath visible in front of me, it was clear: I can do this.
PS: Thank you for your support. I am getting closer to reaching my fundraising target. Every dollar is a blessing. Every gift is appreciated. THANK YOU!
Thank you! Words cannot express the sense of gratitude crossing the Tyndale campus as gifts have come to help in this season of great need. Tyndale is truly blessed by a faithful and supportive community of alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends.
While the numbers are still being crunched, we can report that over $1.8-million has been raised. This is an incredible blessing. We give sincere thanks to you. And sincere thanks to our Heavenly Father for His provision.
