The race is a 200-mile, 12-person relay from Muskegon, Michigan to Traverse City, Michigan. The race will take place September 27th-28th, 2019. Last year the LWM team completed the race in 34 hours, and raised $25,625.86. Each team member was given the goal to raise $2,000, for a total team goal of $24,000. The LWM team was able to surpass this goal their first year, and all of the money went to the LWM scholarship fund, that allows kids to attend camp for free. The LWM scholarship fund is incredibly powerful because it creates opportunities for children who may have never had the opportunity otherwise. LWM welcomes children from different racial and financial backgrounds, levels the playing field, and teaches campers that they are all welcome and loved by God. Being accepted and loved in a community makes such an incredible impact on a young person’s life, and is a radical experience for some of the campers who come in and don’t know God yet.
