The CNMI Chapter of the Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a non-profit organization designed to help married couples live a more harmonious life through enhanced communication skills. The next Marriage Encounter Weekend is set for Nov. 8–10, 2013, at the Kanoa Resort Saipan where approximately 25 couples will be “Encountered.” Each Weekend is a financial endeavor to raise $10,000 to cover the costs of the hotel, meals, and materials for all the couples and the presenters. As such, Worldwide Marriage Encounter is organizing a series of fundraising activities this season.
On Sunday, Oct. 13, 2013, ME is preparing for the Pre-HOM Fundraising Bike Race for the island’s cycling community starting at Mariana Resort & Spa. The start and finish will mimic the HOM Race on Dec. 7, 2013. Cyclists who are interested in practicing part of the HOM route should definitely enter!
There will be four courses ranging in distance (50km, 25km, 16km, 8km) and the event is presented as a family-friendly activity with both kids and adult divisions. Entry fees are $10 adults and $5 kids (ages 6–13 years old).
The race day check-in time is 5am–5:45am, with the race start at 6am.
Race entry forms are available at Gold’s Gym Saipan. For sponsorship or race information, contact Russ and Kanae Quinn at 285-1168 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. (PR)
