Get FIT at the 2013 Annual Conference by participating in the 4th Annual Foot’n It for Relief event as we help eliminate malaria.
This non-competitive 5K walk/run is organized in support of Bishop Trimble’s FIT challenge and in collaboration with the Wellness Ministry of the Iowa Conference.
Participants will be raising funds for the Imagine No Malaria campaign. Members of Iowa UMC congregations and communities are invited to pledge for their pastor or lay delegates in raising money for this campaign. Churches may also hold their own walks to raise funds as well.
The Golden Shoe Award will be given to the church raising the most funds. Challenge your congregation to get FIT and join the Bishop on June 9th.
