CAMP KIRKWOOD K-5K (2016)
Decked out in their tie-dye shirts, the counselors and senior high campers of Camp Kirkwood in Ohio ran or walked to raise awareness and funds for orphaned and vulnerable children. All week, they learned about hungering after righteousness, then took action to help those who are physically hungry. As a result, they raised $550 for children in South Africa.
“The 5k was amazing, but watching high schoolers running to raise money to help feed children was life-changing.”
“Participating in this campaign opened my eyes to the needs of orphans around the world.”
“My wife and I attended the Big Ticket Festival in Gaylord, MI. We went through the World Orphans tent and felt compelled to help in some way. When I saw the opportunity to serve by having a race, I immediately realized that my passion for having motorcycle races at our house could be used for furthering the kingdom, instead of just being a fun event. It gave me the spotlight to share with my friends about how the Lord has blessed my family and how I wanted to help in some small way make a child's life brighter and possibly show them the light of Jesus”
“I loved how the rescue team was very much a group effort. We were pushed outside our comfort zones, but we were also choosing to do this together. Many of us thought we'd never run a race and also felt uncomfortable asking others to support us, but the overall purpose of the team and the biblical call to love and serve orphans pushed us to try. And in the end, not one of us regretted making the attempt; instead, we found great joy in supporting orphans in Cambodia.”
“We enjoyed inviting friends to celebrate a milestone birthday, but also participate in supporting a World Orphans Campaign. Giving people a chance to learn more about World Orphans and to give financially added to the birthday festivities in a meaningful way!”
“Seeing our campers embrace the goal and concept of this fundraiser has blessed me deeply, and reminded me of the power and tenacity of young people working toward a shared mission.”
