5K & Fun Run

​​We had a great turnout this past Saturday for our 8th Annual EOYoungLife 5K & Fun Run. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this event, it is a camp fundraiser to build scholarships for kids in financial need who want to attend  Young Life camps this summer with Eastern Ottawa.  It is also a way for any camper to earn money for their own camp costs. The last seven years of this event have been a blast and we've been able to support many kids - this year was no different. We had 120 participants. With sponsorship and participants we were able to raise $3,500! Thank you for helping to send kids to camp! This summer EOYoungLife Leaders will be taking middle school students to Michindoh, high school students to Timber Wolf Lake and Wilderness Ranch, and college students to the Grand Tetons.  

If you would still like to help send kids to camp consider Buying A Seat On The Bus - fillthebus.eoyl.org ​or check out the upcoming fundraisers.
