First Walk-a-Thon!

Last Friday the CEF National Board of St. Kitts and Nevis hosted their first ever walk-a-thon fundraiser!

Fundraising walks are very popular in St. Kitts and we had about 20 people participate! The board will be hosting another walk-a-thon this Fall and it will likely have even more in attendance!

The event started at 7pm with prayer and then everyone started off together.

The walk was about 11 kilometers. Sean and I didn’t realize it was that far… living on an island makes it seem like much less. We honestly thought it would take about 2 or 2 1/2 hours to complete. Maddy and I went home after the walk started because it was held so late. This turned out to be for the best because Sean didn’t get home until after 11pm!

Everyone had a great time and the evening ended with refreshments back at the CEF office! It was a great fundraiser and seemed to be a lot fun.

I could keep writing about it but I’ll get to the pictures…

They would walk beyond the neighborhood on the hill (Bird Rock) turn around and come back!

And they were off! Complete with a police escort!

Thank you so much to everyone who prayed for this fundraiser to be successful! We are so encouraged to see the ministry here quickly becoming self-supported and locally funded!
