Due to the unprecedented events surrounding the COVID-19 virus we have no choice but to postpone our annual Color Fun Run.  Our hope is to reschedule it for a later date.  It saddens us that a sunny Saturday can’t be spent together doing what we all love…helping BCC.  However, we must take the necessary precautions to help reduce the risk of spreading the virus.  We hope you too are taking the necessary and recommended precautions medical professionals and government authorities are recommending for your own safety and for the safety of others.

Our annual Color Fun Run is our single biggest fundraiser each year and our annual budget greatly depends on it. 

The funds raised from this event provide a significant part of the startup money needed to get things kicked off at the beginning of the summer.   Therefore, we’re asking for your help!  Here are a few things you can do:

  1. Be praying for those affected by COVID-19. Be praying for our country.  Be praying for Backwoods Christian Camp and those who work with the camp.  It appears there are uncertain times ahead and we want more than anything to have camp as scheduled this summer.
  2. Help us raise funds for this postponed event just like normal. Walk/run on your own but continue to have people sponsor you to do so.  Share the link, have people sponsor you and win prizes for the funds you raise.  The 1st place fundraiser wins $150 cash!  Raise at least $500 and win a free week of camp!
  3. If you had planned to attend the Color Fun Run, go ahead and send BCC the $35 you would have spent on the registration fee. It would be a great help!
  4. Encourage a young person to get involved. Help them help BCC by having them raise money and by finding others to sponsor them.

Continue to keep us in your prayers as you are in ours and for all those being affected during these difficult times.
