Groups of hearty souls have hiked up Colorado 14ers to support CWO missions since 2013. The outings have been invigorating and fun and a great way for Coloradoans to grow awareness of the ministry and raise financial support. Now there’s a new way you can get out and #getmovinformissions on August 8 … no matter where you live!
Get outside and join us for the #getmovinformissions event. Our hope is that families and friends can get outside and enjoy God’s creation while raising money for CWO,” commented Sarah Denecke. Sarah has participated in most of our 14’er hikes over the years and is on the #getmovinformissions planning team. “We would love for those who know about CWO or who have been on a trip with CWO to share what God has done in your life through being involved. This is a great way to let others know how they can support CWO.”
Sign up and getting sponsors is easy. Just go to cwomissions.org/news-events/ for more info, to register and to sponsor participants. If you can’t #getmovinformissions on August 8, we encourage you to support someone else and the event. The $25 registration fee includes a #getmovinformissions T-shirt. Walk, run, hike or bike by yourself or gather a group. Plan a route and distance that works for you. Make it fun!
Kelly Blair has been part of our 14’er hikes for years, even bringing along her young daughters. “The CWO 14er hike has been a highlight of mine every summer for years! This year I’m so excited that it’s expanding to include so much more! Hiking up a 14er with three little girls isn’t impossible but not exactly easy so I’m thrilled they can participate in a fun way this year! We love CWO and love sharing with our friends about this amazing organization through this event!”
On August 8 we will be doing Facebook and Instagram Lives from various locations. Post your videos and photos of you and your group participating in your activity and tag CWO and use the #getmovinformissions hashtag for a chance to win prizes.
“I love how CWO is always on the move for missions in Haiti, Zimbabwe and Burkina Faso. Previously the 14er hike, I think our new missions event, ‘Get Movin’ for Missions’ is the quintessential and inclusive event to turn any form of exercise and physical activity into missions support, all the while bringing people together amidst a time when we are encouraged to stay apart. I’m excited for this event and its potential! #getmovinformissions!” Heather Richey is also part of our event planning team and brings a wealth of event planning and organizing talent to our group.
We can’t wait to see all the fun activities to #getmovinformissions from all over the country! For more information or help organizing your activity contact us at 303-723-0333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
