Father Maher To Spend Thanksgiving Morning ‘Trotting’ For Local Charities
The Rev. James J. Maher, C.M., is once again lacing up his running shoes to raise money for local charities.
This Thanksgiving (Nov. 27), Niagara University’s president will participate in the 119th annual YMCA Turkey Trot in downtown Buffalo, which generates proceeds for local YMCA programs and services.
In addition, Father Maher is soliciting donations in support of his 8K (approximately 5-mile) run that will benefit Niagara Falls’ Heart, Love and Soul food pantry and dining room.
This past April, Father Maher instituted – and participated in – a 5K “Run Against Hunger” on Niagara University’s campus. More than $1,600 was raised for Heart, Love and Soul.
