ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. We are accepting walk-in registrations.
Registration fee is $20.
On February 24-25, all middle school and high school students (grades 6-12) are invited to take part in our annual 30Hour Fast. Each year, we partner with various organizations and ministries around the world to help bring awareness to a specific need. This year, we will be partnering with 410 Bridge and the village of Tumutumu, Kenya to provide textbooks for students in grades 6-8. Currently students are required to share textbooks, sometimes to the point of 36 students sharing 1 book. This obviously makes it difficult for students to be effective in their classwork and homework.
Our goal of $17,500 will help change the ratio of books to students from 36:1 to 1:1 which will greatly improve student performance and allow for more effective learning activities.
Will you help us Wreck The Ratio?
