Why We Do It
Killarney Baptist Church has a thriving youth ministry under the direction of Student Ministries Leader Darnell. The group participates in lots of great activities that allow the kids to learn important lessons, as well as providing them a way to invite their friends into a non-threatening situation. All of these events cost money, and it is the goal of the Killarney youth and Darnell to never turn someone away from an event because of money. The signature event for the group every year is summer camp. Student Life puts on excellent summer camps on college campuses throughout the country. They bring in some of the foremost speakers and worship leaders in the country for a week long experience that is hard to beat. It is an easy way to invite friends that may not normally attend church. Fundraisers like this 5K are a great way for the kids to put in work and raise money to help pay for themselves and their friends to experience God all throughout the year. Every penny raised from this race goes directly to the youth. Everyone working the event is volunteering their time for the kids. Operating expenses are kept as low as possible to maximize the effectiveness of donations. Thank you to everyone who has participated in this event in the past, and also to all future participants. Your involvement has made a positive impact in the lives of the students of Killarney Baptist Church.
