For the seventh year, Camp Calumet has put together a team of runners who will participate in the annual Reach the Beach relay, set to take place September 15-17, 2016 in New Hampshire. The 200-mile relay begins in the White Mountains and finishes at Hampton Beach State Park. It will take 48 runners, 8 drivers, 4 New Hampshire congregations, legions of volunteers, a couple of handfuls of support staff, countless followers on Facebook, and one thousand donors.


They’re all running/working/sCalumet Reach the Beachupporting for one goal: To raise money for Calumet’s Annual Fund, which keeps the costs low for children who go to Calumet’s Resident Camp. Calumet expects to award some $70,000 this year in campership grants to families who need them, and that money also comes out of the Annual Fund.

You can help too! SHELC will be sponsoring Pastor Jeff Stalley, who will run in the race, and a free-will offering will be collected at our Rally Day Coffee Hour September 11, for Jeff’s efforts. Sam Chang, our Thrivent Representative, has offered matching funds, so please consider supporting the children of Calumet in this way.

Checks can be made out to SHELC with Calumet Reach the Beach in the memo line.
