Reach the Beach, 2017 -- Thursday, September 14 - Saturday 16
Reach the Beach 2016 was just fantastic! Another great run and another wonderful show of support for Camp Calumet's Annual Fund. More than 1000 gifts came from over 800 donors. We had to get the adding machines out of the closet. $87,000! Wow!! And
Reach the Beach is no small endeavor. In fact, it has become one of Calumet's major fundraisers and it involves a whole lot of people. 60 runners. 10 drivers, 5 congregations offering race logistical support, 60 congregations offering runner sponsorship, legions of volunteers, a couple of handfuls of support staff, countless followers on Facebook, and one thousand donors.
