4/14/17 Good Friday Prayer Breakfast
April 14 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am
Rather than meeting on Good Friday, our Chapter tradition has become for the brudders of NCS New Canaan to support a local Good Friday Prayer Breakfast organized by our brudders.
This year, we encourage you to get a ticket (or two, for you and your spouse/significant other, or a table for you and your friends!) to the Pivot Ministries Good Friday Prayer Breakfast, April 14, 7:00 AM at Woodway Country Club in Darien. Tickets are $50. Click HERE for more information and to reserve your spot. The amazing Pivot Men’s Choir is NOT to be missed. Also, this year’s keynote speaker will be runner and Olympian Abbey D’Agostino.
Abigail “Abbey” D’Agostino is an American middle- and long-distance runner. D’Agostino is the most decorated Ivy League athlete in track and field and cross country running. She is the first Dartmouth female distance runner to win an NCAA title. She won a total of seven NCAA titles (1 – cross country; 4 – indoor track; 2 – outdoor track) in her career. In 2014 she became a professional runner for New Balance.
At the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, she received considerable international media attention following an incident during a 5000m heat in which both she and New Zealander Nikki Hamblin fell. The two women helped each other finish the race and were allowed to compete in the final; however, D’Agostino had suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus and wasn’t able to participate further. Both athletes were praised for their sportsmanship and “Olympic spirit”, and were subsequently awarded the Rio 2016 Fair Play Award by the International Fair Play Committee
