Board Member Carries Torch
Providence Board Chairman Don Streuber carries the Olympic Torch

On Tuesday, Jan. 5, Providence Board Member Don Streuber carried the Olympic Torch in the Winnipeg Olympic Torch Relay.

For Streuber, who was involved in a life-threatening vehicle accident with a train three years ago, this run is an incredible testimony to the full healing he has received from God. Streuber completed his part of the relay heading west on Portage Avenue in temperatures that felt like -40C.

Gus Konkel, president of Providence College and Seminary, said, “Don was asked how fast he would run, and his reply was, ‘For those few moments, it will be the speed of light.’”

Streuber is a proud Manitoban and president and CEO of Bison Transport, an award-winning Manitoba owned and operated company.

Streuber also purchased the torch as a memory of the momentous occasion.
