Team Daba at Race to 2025 in WA

Race to 2025, the adventure fundraising race with eternal impact!

Race to 2025 is a two-day race that bridges the adrenalin of adventure sport young people crave and the extreme challenge to which Jesus calls His Church—to make disciples of all nations. During the two-day challenge, teams of four compete against each other in adventure sports and in simulated challenges of missionary life. Racers also engage in basic linguistics training and encounter a remote, ‘hidden village.’ Here, with no bridge language, they grapple with the challenges of culture and language while gathering and analyzing crucial linguistic data from mother tongue speakers.

Montana Race (Camp Bighorn): October 10-12, 2014

Washington Race (Timber Hill Ranch near Leavenworth): March, 2015
