Mount Jubilee Ministries’ 3​rd​
Annual Fun Walk/Run/Auction Gets Bigger, Better
On Saturday, September 8, over 200 spirited MJM supporters rallied together to send a
resounding statement of support to the special needs population in our community. With
the increasing support from our local community, the MJM vision -- of providing
programs and services to the unserved and under-served I/DD population -- will soon
become a reality within Rockingham County.
Mount Jubilee Ministries has exceeded the fundraising goal of $45,000!

The MJM 3rd Annual Family Fun Walk, Run & Auction generated over $48,000!
Donations and in-kind services were secured throughout the community from corporate,
business, church, and individual partners. Opportunities to further surpass the
fundraising goal will remain open throughout September. Donations may be made
online at MountJubilee.org or by mailing checks to MJM, PO Box 81, Reidsville, NC
27323. The final report of the event will be highlighted in the MJM Fall Newsletter.
MJM’s Executive Director, Cecil Cottrell, enthusiastically commented, “Thanks to each
of you who volunteered and generously gave to MJM’s signature fundraising event. In
addition to the funds generated from the event, the promise of hope and outreach to the
special needs population was tangible -- real and very personal!”
As the day unfolded, not a drop of rain fell as over 200 attendees and volunteers
gathered for registration, face painting, entertainment, and fellowship before conquering
the 5K course for the walk and run. Participants left assured that they were partners in
a grassroots effort with MJM to provide much needed programs and services for the
I/DD within the area.

Established in 2005 as a 501(c) 3 non-profit, MJM was founded by a group of
individuals desiring to partner with the special needs population, their families, and the
community to provide enrichment opportunities for productive living. The ministry has
hosted Camp Jubilee, a residential summer camp, for fourteen years. August 5th-9th,
MJM hosted Camp Jubilee 2018. Camp was held at the Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H
Educational Center in Reidsville, NC. The camp hosted 46 campers and boasted 60
volunteers.

County’s special need population. Also feel free to contact Cecil Cottrell, MJM’s
